Any help is appreciated, this is hopefully a simple question.

I have x number of rows that are constantly being added to and deleted on a weekely bases.

When a new row is entered I need the formula for that column to automatically fill in with the appropriate forumula, font, and color without having to drag down the cell.

thanks,

Phil

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.
This will probably require the use of VBA code. You can probably use the macro recorder to get the formatting part.

How is the data entered/deleted? Is there cutting & pasting involved?

Rows that need to be deleted I have just been using the delete row function.

New rows are entered manually.

Thanks,

Phil

I would recommend creating an Event Procedure macro (using the Worksheet_Change event). Basically, you would check a column to see if it has an entry. If it does, then you would create/copy formulas in another column.

For information on this, see http://www.cpearson.com/excel/events.htm

If you need help writing it, you will need to post the more explicit details (i.e. methodology, columns invloved, etc.) and maybe even an example.

Thanks for you help I will take a look into it.

The spread sheet is used to enter a clients name, DOB, date of appointment to keep track of patients.

These are the formulas I will be using.

Formulas:
1. Number Clients 1-n
2. Clients current age
3. Clients age at appt
4. A Date 6 mos after clients last appoint.

Columns
- number Clients (formula 1)
- Name
- DOB
- Clients age (formula 2)
- Age at appt (formula 3)
- Last appt
- 6 months after last vist (formula 4)
