    Another meter reading spreadsheet that needs help

    Hi everyone... Firstly i'll apologise for my lack of spreadsheet knowledge. This has been bugging me for days and I cannot come up with a formula.

    Basically (and I hope I don't confuse anyone).. I want my spreadsheet to calculate the usage when I enter the figures.. but sometime I might not take meter readings for a few days. The problem with this is the formula I want must calculate from the last reading - which might not be the day before (you'll understand once you look at the spreadsheet).

    Meter readings.xls

    Have a little look.. let me know what you think.

    Thanks.

    Daniel

    In D6 copied down and into other columns
    =IF(ISNUMBER(C7),C7-INDEX(C$6:C6,MATCH(999^100, C$6:C6)),"")

    Is that what you are after? You confused me with the value in D20, it doesn't match the pattern of other cells.
