I would like to add/subtract across moving columns. i.e. - cell a1 - should show me the total of cells B2+E2, then cell b2 - should show me the total of cells F2+G2... basically I want to jump across three cells using copy paste.

Is there a way to do this without using the offset function.
 

Excel Facts

Difference between two dates
Secret function! Use =DATEDIF(A2,B2,"Y")&" years"&=DATEDIF(A2,B2,"YM")&" months"&=DATEDIF(A2,B2,"MD")&" days"

Ok but the formulas aren't the same distance each time? In your example the first
B2+E2
the next
F2+G2
why doesn't the second part jump three as well? Guess I'm not getting your question

Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear. Basically, on page on I keep a running total.
So in cell a1 I want to add (page 2) b1+e1, in cell a2, I want to add (page 2) e1+H1 and so on.


thx.
