Adding a number to itself

Posted by Cathy on October 30, 2000 1:13 PM

If I have the number 15 in a column and then I enter the 5 how do I get the column to automatically update itself to show 20? So everytime I enter a number, I want it to add itself to the number that was there before?

Help please.

Cathy, one way to do this is via event handler
code.....The change event for the sheet.

eg. say sheet1 and the cell is A1 then use this

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)

Static A As Double

If Target.Address = "$A$1" Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Target.Value = A + Target.Value
A = Range("a1").Value
Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
End Sub
