##### New Member
I need to prepare a spreadsheet that shows the following information:

Three columns:

1st column will be date (each Sunday from 7-6-08 through the last Sunday of 2008.

2nd column will be a dollar amount collected for that date

3rd column will be the total collected to date.

Beginning balance is \$250,000

Can someone help me? I am a new excel user who will be taking classes soon, but I need this particular document done asap.

Thanks so much!
Debbie

### Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

What do you actually need help with?

If it's the dates then it's pretty straightforward.

Here's one way.

1 Put 7-06-08 in A1.

2 Put =A1+1 in A2.

3 Copy A2 down as far as needed.

The formulas are entered once in each column and filled down. So for example in A4 enter the formula

=A3+7

then click in A4, hover the cursor over the bottom right of the cell until the pointer turns into a + then hold down the left mouse button, drag down as far as needed and release the mouse button.

YES!! Thank you

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
