Hi,
I am a begineer in excel.I know use of simple formulas like sum,etc.But i am stuck in a problem.The problem is:-
ON THE SAME WORKSHEET, COLUMN C (MONTH'S TARGETS) & COLUMN D ARE
(MONTH'S ACTUAL) SALES FIGURES.
I WANT COLUMN I (YTD TARGETS )& COLUMN j (YTD ACTUAL) ,TO BE A CUMMULATIVE YTD TOTAL.
EACH MONTH I WILL ENTER NEW DATA IN COLUMN C & D AND WANT THESE TO ADD AUTOMATICALLY TO COLUMN I & J , EQUALLING A YTD TOTAL.

Please explain the procedure to do so.I am a beginner.

### 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
Copy the formula across and down as you need:

Sheet1

Thats the matter.I dont want to copy down by dragging.
I want that to be automatic.As soon as i enter data new in first two columns cumulative averages in the last two columns should be automatically calculated.Is that possible?

If you have Excel 2003 (or better), you can make it a table, and those will be added automatically. Otherwise you need to use VBA.
