Setting up columns to show total

```I am attempting to do the following
in column 1, I want to include an expense and continue adding to the column

in column 2 I would like it to show a continuous total of each entry I put
into column 1

Could someone please help me setup the proper formula for doing this.

```Hank

Assuming expenses entered in column A

In B1 enter   =A1

In B2 enter    =IF(A2="","",A2+B1)

Drag/copy B2 down as far as you wish.

Column B will show nothing until data is entered in Column A.

```Hi Gord

Whilst Ardus' solution has great merit in terms of simplicity, I
remembered a thread where David McRitchie was pointing out that
=SUM(\$A\$A:A1) can be inordinately slow when dealing with large ranges.
Your solution would perform faster for large ranges
I found the thread again and a link is posted below.

Ardus' solution does have considerable merit in being robust against row
insertions and deletions (which yours does not)
and David's proposition uses Offset() which uses a volatile function
which I try to avoid when possible.

I would propose
=SUM(INDEX(A:A,1):INDEX(A:A,ROW()))

How do I specify column for named range of rows
I have a sheet on which new lines of data get added almost daily, the first column being a time and date stamp.

Now I want to chart different time intervals in a chart only by changing the name in the SERIES function. For example, if I am plotting column B against time, I would want to specify like SERIES(,June A, June B).

Acc2002: Crosstabs: Column header length limit?
Dear all, crosstabs in Access 2002 seem to have a limit for the length of column headers: 20 characters. Queries with headers that differ only after the first 20 characters do not work. Any suggestions to get it work? Is there, e.g., any registry parameter that could be adjusted? Thanks for every hint, JotKa I think you would find the same thing to be true for field names in a table or controls on a form. AFAIK, there is no workaround.

Pasting into columns...
Hi. I've used Excel 97 for years. One of the things I did frequently was copy info from my bank accounts and paste (special/unformatted text) into a workbook. The data always pasted neatly into my preformatted columns, e.g., a line reading "02/28/2007 Check 2100 \$500.00 \$1500.00" went into columns headed Date, Transaction, Amount, Balance. Now I've upgraded to Excel 2003 (in Windows Vista) and when I paste the same data it all goes into the first column, meaning I have to cut "Check 2100", "\$500.00", and "\$1500.00" and paste each indivi...

Added data in columns

Word 2007 show combined revisions in one document
I combined several sets of revisions in one document and noticed a peculiarity: when a word was replaced without deleting the space after the word and inserting a new space, the deleted word would show up twice in the combined-revisions document -- once before the inserted word and once after. So it looked like this: (replacing "dogs" with "cats" -- I'm USING caps to show the deleted word) I like DOGScatsDOGS. Where the space had been left in, it looked correct: I like DOGS cats. There was no problem in this respect with the individual redlined do...

Importing CSV
Hi All, I have to import CSV files into excel. A regular issue with this is that often the CSV files will contain data (in this case account codes) that excel interprets as dates (such as '3-8000' being converted to 1 Mar 8000). Nothing unusual so far, in that we handle that issue by importing manually (External Data - Text import), and specifying that the field in question is imported as TEXT not GENERAL. However, I have a file that, when I double click on it, it opens up perfectly (except with dates where it should be text as outlined above), but if I manually import that f...

Calculating the percent effective based on a set weight.
I am trying to rate the performance based on a predetermined percentage weight. Example: Bob has a 7% quality rate Tracy has a 8% quality rate. Larry has a 9% quality rate.

Question: With a goal of 8%, how do I figure their effectiveness based on a 30% weight? Since I'm dealing with quality, the lower the number the higher their weight.
