If you want the balance in column B, and you are making entries in column A
which are to be subtracted from the balance, put the starting balance in B1.
In B2 put the formula   =B1-A2

Creating a Browse for Folder
I have seen programs where there is an edit field for defining the location of a file and then to the right of the field is a button with 3 periods on it which when clicked brings up a browse for folder file box where the user can choose a directory and file and then it is populated in the edit field. Is there a custom control to use for this or do I have to develop this myself? Take a look at SHBrowseForFolder and CFileDialog.

CONCATENATE text to create a formula to be evaluated
Hi, I am wanting to concatenate a set of text to create a formula.
