I want the user to place an "X" into a cell and then have the formula accept that the "X" is equal to a value in cloumn C of that row.
Then I want to be able to subtract that cell value from the grand total for that row.

I have a spreadsheet for gym member fees and i want the "X" to represent that the member has paid and to subtract that amount from the total owing by that member

Hi Warren

Suppose the X goes in A1 and the number to subtract is in Cell B1 you would use:


The "1:1" is row 1
The "" means empty text

Dave is it possible to expand the "A1=X" to cover multiple columns
