# Circular Reference

##### Active Member
I am trying to keep track of annual and career earnings for a small group (about 50) of golfers. I would like to use one column to enter the earnings this week and add that amount to the annual and career earnings. I am not a sophisticated excel user. I created four columns:
A B C D
NAME THIS WEEK ANNUAL CAREER
John Doe 10.00 100.00 200.00

The formula in C is =SUM(B2,C2) and D is =SUM(B2,D2). I get a circular reference error message. Is there some way to accomplish this?

### Excel Facts

Quick Sum
Select a range of cells. The total appears in bottom right of Excel screen. Right-click total to add Max, Min, Count, Average.

C can not be an answer and a calculation at the same time...

ie. C2 can not = B2 + C2* as C2 is the answer...
