Formula for Table
Formula for Table  

Tested in Excel 2013

Assume your first data table is in cells A1:D9  (of course A1 is blank)

Assume your AB1 AB2 AC1 AC2  are in B11:E11
Assume your   

are in A12:A14

B12:  =SUMIF($A$2:$A$9,B$11,INDEX($B$2:$D$9,0,MATCH($A12,$B$1:$D$1,0)))

then select B2 and drag fill to the right to E12
Select B12:E12 and drag down to B14:E14

that produced this:

  AB1   AB2   AC1   AC2
APPLE   5   9   8   14
MANGO   19   23   22   28
ORANGE   33   37   36   42

in A11:E14
