    Enter in Value A, Have A subract from B while adding A to C

    Hello all,

    I am sorry if the title and/or body is confusing. I will try to explain as detailed as possible

    I am using Excel 2011, creating a balance sheet of customers whom are on payment plans so I have a title of "Amount Down" Meaning how much they have paid thus far, "Amount Paid" As well as "Remaining Balance"

    What I need is the ability to plug in a value under "amount paid", have that be subtracted from "Remaining Balance" as the value for "Amount Paid" is also added to "AMOUNT DOWN". Then I need the PAID value go back to nothing/"0"

    If anyone can help me out, if this even makes sense, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time

    -Tim

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    What you described makes perfect sense, however it is not possible with regular formulas - it will require some VBA (code) to do it hw way you want.

    An alternative would be to just keep a running total of payments, something like...
    A2 = name
    B2 = payment
    C2 = paid to date (this would have to be a manual entry the 1st time round, and formulas from then on)
    D2 = Balance outstanding

    OR you could have a long list of list of names and payments in 1 sheet (sort of like a data base), and then do yje summaries on another sheet.

    If this is something that would interest you, let me know and we can start putting something together for you
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools

    Thank you for your response! I linked an example of what I have set up already and I am not too sure if that is what you mean by a large list of names and balances.

    I'm sorry that I do not have that big of an excel based knowledge to go by so I am not sure what you means by a yje =X

    Thank you very much again for your help! =D
