Actually I think Control+d for duplicate works.
I tried it because I wondered the same thing.

I’ll give a crack at explaining this to build on what Anne was saying:
For simplicity in my mind, I’m going to approach this slightly different
from Anne.

I am assuming that cell D14 has your first dollar amount to add to the
running balance in Column E.
Step 1.  Go to cell E14 and type “=D14”.  This is just pulling in the
value from column D into column E for this line item as the first item
in your running balance.
Step 2: go down to Cell E15.  This is the first place where you’ll be
adding a new line item to your running balance. Your formula should be
“=E14+D15”.  This adds the value of the new line item to the balance
listed in the cell above.
Step 3.  Go to cell E16 and press Control+D , which will copy the above
formula into this cell, adjusting the cell references as needed.  You
can do this same keystroke all the way down Column E to build that
running balance.

There are other methods, but you seem to be a novice Excel user, so I’m
leaving this simple.

Is there a formula where the running balance/total can be in column E
for example? Example: row 14 column D has $22.50 and this should be seen
in same row 14 but column E. The next row, 15, has in column D $220.59
and row 15, column E should have the running total or sum. This would go
down all rows and columns. Is this possible or just the total somewhere
at the bottom cell where the total would be seen?

Thank you,

You can put the formula anywhere in column e that you want the total to be.
The formula should be =sum(d14:d100)
Equals sum tells excel that you want to add numbers together.
open parenthesis d14 colon d100 close parenthesis tells it to add d14
through d100.

Hi all,

I am on an EXCEL spreadsheet, putting together a list of deductions for
upcoming tax season.

Can anyone please explain how I add a formula to add up costs of items
as a running total.

The costs are in column D and I am wanting the running balance in column
E. Where do I put this formula and pardon my extreme ignorance here,
what formula would I put in? The sum of these costs as they go down the

The costs start on row 14 column D and I would like this to go down the
entire column, lets say to row 100 to be safe. Can someone please tell
me the formula to put in and where this is embedded?

Thank you,

I am using Windows 10, Jaws 2019.1912.1 and Office 2019.

Thanks for your help,
