    vba for difference btw 2 numbers

    i have an excel sheet1 with the following values

    I want to write a macro to do the following:

    (col A only has positive values, Col B has both positive and negetive values) I want to find the difference between the +ve and -ve values, keeping in mind the following;
    if col A's value is less than col B's Values, (Eg: 1 -3) the result should be -2
    if col A's value is equal than col B's Values, (Eg: 1 -1) the result should be 0
    if col A's value is less than col B's Values, (Eg: 1 3) the result should be 2


    QtyA QtyB
    1 -1
    1 -2
    2 -2
    3 1
    1 -5
    1 -3
    5 2
    1 1
    2 3
    5 -2
    1 1
    1 -1
    6 -5
    7 9
    8 3


    I want Col D to have the difference between the ColA And Col B.


    The result should be this:

    QtyA QtyB Result
    1 -1 0
    1 -2 -1
    2 -2 0
    3 1 2
    1 -5 -4
    1 -3 -2
    5 2 3
    1 1 0
    2 3 1
    5 -2 3
    1 1 0
    1 -1 0
    6 -5 1
    7 9 2
    8 3 5
