#### Formula question -simple for those who know

```Hello
I'm trying to add a number that was calculated by means of a formula in one
column to the sum of a different column.

Example:

Column A  (running balance)              Column B (sum)
=+e5+c6-d6                                          =sum(h1:h8)

Col A's number is running balance. I copied the formula down so that the
next row changes the formula to =+e6=c7-d7

I want that running balance to add to a sum in another column.
I can add the first cell to it, but it doesn't change if the running balance
changes. I know that is because it's pointing to that single cell and not the
formula.

Can this do what I want it to do?
```

```Are you say that you have just one *sum* cell and you want to add the *last*
running balance figure in Column A?

If so the use:

=SUM(H1:H8)+LOOKUP(10^10,A1:A8)

```Thank you for trying - no that didn't work.  I was just throwing numbers out
for example.  Here is a picture of the real spreadsheet.  I'll use simple
numbers to get the point across.

C            D        E                     H
50                    1
2              1       51                    1
2             1       52                    1
1
4   Total

The cells in Col E have a formula that I copied down the column so it
changes on each row    E1+c2-d2

Column h is a list of numbers that are totalled at the bottom.

What I want to do is add the current total in Col E to the Total in col H.
I want the total to change as Column E changes .   Column E would be the
variable number.
I can get the two numbers to add, but when I go to the next row and make
changes, the  number stays the same.  It just looks to the cell I originally
entered in the formula.
I hope I was a little clearer this time.  I don't know what I'm trying to
say which makes your job a lot harder! LOL Thanks for trying!

What does the \$ symbol mean in a formula?
What does the \$ symbol mean in a formula? example: =G8*(\$A\$14*2)*100 thanx The \$ is used for absolut referencing. For e.g lets take your formula =G8*(\$A\$14*2)*100 suppose you enter this formula in cell B2, now simply copy this formula one cell to the right (C2) by and one cell down (B3). C2: =H8*(\$A\$14*2)*100 B3: =G9*(\$A\$14*2)*100 So you see that The original G8 has changed, whereas \$A\$1 remains the same in both the new formulae because of the dollar signs.
