    Running Total for Stock On Hand

    I am trying to set up an inventory control sheet for use at a mission hospital. It is pretty basic in that each time med supply issues an item they are to track it on this spreadsheet (which keeps a running total of the stock on hand.) Each row is a different item. My problem is that to update the stock on hand column (eg D2) I need to subtract the amount dispersed (C2) from it. This causes a circular reference because I have = D2-C2 in cell D2 as I want to always update D2 to the present amount of Stock on Hand. I know how to reset C2 to zero with a macro when they open it back up but I don't know how to cleanly allow the Stock on Hand to be updated. I hope I explained this clearly. Thank you to any one who can help.

    Hi,

    Would you upload the workbook so that we can see the request in context.

    Re: Running Total for Stock On Hand

    Here is a brief version of my spreadsheet. There is only one line item in this one
    but there will be up to 100 items (eg rows). There are other formulas and macros
    that I have left in but what I am really wanting is a way to add column J to column K
    each time a dispersement is entered. I have commented out one of my macros that I was
    using for that purpose because it was awkward and would not allow me to protect cells that
    I do not want the users to edit. Thanks so much.

    Are you hoping to have 1 row per item? So that there will only be 1 row containing Adhesive tape? If so, I think you are going to have to rethink this project as I don't see how this will work otherise. If you were to have a sheet listing all transactions and then a summary sheet, one row per item - that would be OK.

    Each row is a different item. They do not care about recording each transaction just a running total of the stock on hand for each item as well as a running total of dispersements for each item. They have cards they are required to write on for each dispersement transaction. As I am thinking this through I might need to keep all of those columns but I imagine there is a better way to reset values in cells with a macro than how I am doing it. My macro copies values when the workbook is open from column K and using paste special (values only) to the cells in column E.
