I NEED A FORMULA THAT WILL KEEP A RUNNING BALANCE FOR BOTH ADDITIONS AND SUBTRACTIONS?
HELP
PAULINE

Posted by on

Dear pauline, you can link cells in formula bar to see immediate effect of additions and subtractions in dependent boxes.

Like for example you add three numbers in three boxes A1, B1, C1 and answer is supposed to go in D1, just type =SUM(A1+B1+C1)
in D1.

now when you will change the values of a b and c boxes, the value of d1 will automatically change. for adding more numbers you can leave boxes empty so that you can fill in later to see the change in the sum box.

please press fixya if that has helped you.

### How do i subtract two cells and progress down a row by a day so the next day the formula subtracts the current day and previous day?

You have to start the sequence with a slightly different formula because there is no preceding value for Monday.
The rest of the formulas are running totals so they are the same just dynamically duplicated down the column add infinitum.
Just duplicate the the formula Picking up the value form the result column and subtracting the next running subtraction value.

### I have a spreadsheet set up with columns which have dollar amounts which need to be added or subtracted. How can I set up a formula to do this automatically without me manually doing it on each line.

Best bet would be to utilize the "Help" function for formulas. You will need to set up a formula for each column you would like to format. Or simply add a Function (123-456) or (123+123) That way the cell will know the math. Good Luck

### Ms-office

Subtraction can be done in two ways in Office using the following formulas in the formula (fx) bar:
1. =A1-A2
2. =SUM(A1,-A2)
The above formulas refer to cell reference A2 subtracted from A1. As usual, you can use number values instead of cell references.

The SUM formula subtracts by changing the sign of the reference. Remember the sign rules, and thus - -x is in effect +x.

### BASIC EXCEL FORMULA

Are you looking to solve any particular problem?--- because there are a huge number of possible formulas in Excel.

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3
2 10 4
3 15 2
4 1 2 3

Then suppose you type in the following formulas (in the D column):

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 =A1+B1
2 10 4 =A2-B2
3 15 2 =A3*B2
4 1 2 3 =sum(A4:C4)

Then the following answers will appear in the D column:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 23
2 10 4 6
3 15 2 30
4 1 2 3 6

### Computer

Any formula in Excel starts with the equals sign ("="). This is how Excel distinguishes between formulas and literal values. Knowing this, you can create lots of formulas using the usual operators of +, -, * and / for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, respectively. Please see the examples below.

Add the contents of cell A1 to the contents of cell B1: =A1+B1

Subtract 2 - 1: =2-1
Add the contents of cell A1 from the contents of cell B1: =B1-A1

Multiply 1 times 2: =1*2
Multiply the contents of cell A1 times the contents of cell B1: =A1*B1

I hope this resolves the question. If not, please let me know.
