For example, you have three numbers from A1 to A3. On row A4, type =SUM(A1:A3).

That should do it. :)

That should do it. :)

Yes,

That is Select the Cells which you want to SUM and Press**Alt+=**

This will bring the total just below the selected cells.

Thanks

- Select the column. (click on top of the column it will select)
- Right Click and select Format Cells.
- Select
**Currency**in**Category**then press**OK**

I certainly can't take the time to explain v lookup to you in this forum, but I can direct you to several sites that you can familiarize yourself with it. It's going to take you time to to understand it.

In the first row of numbers, assume row 3 for example (leaving 2 rows for titles, put in cell E3: =C3+D3. In the next row (assuming row 4, put in cell E4: =C4+D4+E3. Use fill down to populate this formula all the way down.

No tmaking promises but try pushing F9 and for future make sure the Automatic caluculation is turned on.

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.

Suppose you have the following numbers typed into your Excel spreadsheet:

**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

Sorry, I don't clearly understand what you want to do, but if you can explain a little more, I can help. If you want to subtract one cell from a column total, sum the column and subtract the one cell. If there is a need to subtract adjacent column entries, or similar type needs, there are formulas that can do this easily as well. Just a little more info - we'll have a FixYa!

Assuming that all of your data is in a single row number 4 and between columns N and PF

Try:

{=OFFSET(N4,0,MATCH(TODAY(),N4:PF4,0)+1,1,1)}

The MATCH function looks up the value of today() in the range N4 to PF4 and returns the number of columns offset from the beginning of the range. (The 0 here does an exact match)

The OFFSET function returns a value from a cell a specified number of columns from a reference cell, in this case N4, which is the first column that contains the search data. We need to add on to this value to skip the Interest column.

Daryl

Here is one way:

In this example, my numbers are in cells a1 through a4. My average is computed with the formula:

=SUM(A1:A4)/COUNTIF(A1:A4,"<>0")

I'm summing the range of numbers and dividing that by the count of nonzero numbers. With this formula, you'll get an error if there are no nonzero numbers.

The post system does not recognize the product Microsoft Works Suite 2006, so I entered the name XP Home Edition. The spreadsheet program I have is a part of the Media Center Edition.
