Negative Number column
I am trying to make a column product negative numbers when I manually enter
them in a spreadsheet. I am using a simple sum formula to add across rows
(10 columns) and the first column should always be a negative number i.e
credit and the rest positive.
I am real new to excel so I must be doing something wrong.
Assuming the 10 cols are A to J,
maybe a simpler way would be to use something like ..
In K1: =SUM(B1:J1)-A1
Or, in K1: =SUM(B1:J1,-A1)
with K1 copied down
Then you could just enter the credit numbers
in the first column "as-is",

Back in 2000, you could set to group by Conversation Topic, which lumped all
emails with the same email subject together. Now it was still sorted by date
first, meaning the subject-topic with the most recent received (descending)
email with be positioned on top. So it was going by Sort, then Group.
Now in 2002, the priority has been reversed. It is grouped first then sorted
by date. Meaning the email subject with the first in alphabetical order will

Reports in Access are based on queries (ideally), or on tables. If your

You can insert a row and a column with your own names, but they will not be
