Hi you all!!
Can someone please give me the VBA code to create the "MINUS FUNCTION", i'm always using the traditional way (Ex: A1-A2-A3...) i wanna be able to type =minus(range of cells), like we do with the SUM FUNCTION.

Thanks guys...

Why do you need to use VBA? You can just use what MrKowz said as a formula.

=A1-Sum(A2:A3)

Try:

Code:

    Minus = (2 * rng.Cells(1)) - Application.Sum(rng)
End Function
