MS EXCEL formula
Rick Mladek
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 column.
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,
Rick

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.
HTH,
Richard

The first instance of the formula would be in e14, right?
then. With e13 blank, this would be the formula: =d14+e13. This should display the number in d14. To propagate the formula down the page: So. Copy the formula in e14. Then Ctrl+g (go to). Type in the cells you want to hold the formula (e15:e100) and enter. The cells will be selected. Paste the formula ctrl+v. that should do it. good luck!

Richard,
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,
Rick

Good morning Ann,

Looking over your directions, now that I am alert, I have a question... Your first point: =d14+e13. This should display the number in d14. What do you mean by it should display the number in d14? The cost/amount is in the D column beginning on row 14. The running sum/total needs displayed down the E column. Is this how it will appear with the directions given? Thank you, Rick

Perhaps you could give a little more detail about the structure of your spreadsheet.
What are you adding together to get the running total?

Hi, Rick,
Assuming the following formula in E14: =e13+d14. E13 should have your beginning balance, which would be 0 (Excel assumes a blank is 0). D14 should have the first number you want to add to the beginning balance, e.g. 10. So. the number in e14 (e13+d14) should be 10. Copying/pasting the formula into f15, it should read =e14+D15. So. E14 is 10, as calculated above; +d15 which is the next number you are adding, say 32. E15 should equal 42. And it carries on down, incrementing as you go. Make sense? Only one cup of coffee so far, so if it doesn't I will drink more and try to explain it better.


Rick Mladek
Richard, what is added is not important. I am adding numbers from one row, down the column, purely basic/simple...

Van Lant, Robin
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.

If you just wish to add the cells in a collum do the following; Example =SUM(D1:D14) You would put this formulia in d 15 So now the first cell in the formulia is the one you wish to start with and the last cell in the formulia is the last cell you wish to add together and that would be in celld15 where you put the formulia

No, it's Control D, which is the paste down function. This command will copy whatever is in the cell above and, if a formula, will update the cell references as needed.
