    add numbers until value reached

    I need help writing a formula to add a column of numbers until a value is reached, then start over adding numbers starting at the next cell after the value is reached.

    Thanks for any help.

    Re: add numbers until value reached

    Assuming you are starting in row 2, say A2, and B1 is an empty cell, then in B2, try something like:

    =IF(B1+A2>1000,A2,B1+A2)

    copied down

    where 1000 is your threshold
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
