Thanks, but what happens after row 4? Do I have to keep entering the formula
or will it just carry through? Also I was thinking about a format like
A B C
Date Amount+/- Balance
15jan 100.00 100.00
16jan -35.00 65.00
17jan 65.00 130.00

Roger

Try this to get the format in your latest example.....

In C2 enter =B2

In C3 enter =IF(B3="","",C2+B3)

Drag/copy the C3 formula down Column C as far as you want.

To drag/copy hover the mouse pointer over the bottom right corner of C3 where
you see the black lump.

You will get a black + sign. Click on that and drag down a bunch of rows.

If nothing entered in Column B, the cells in C will look blank.
