When I prepare a tax return on, e.g., TurboTax, I can click on a tax-form box and "add supporting details," which takes me to a little "mini-spread sheet" on top of the form, usually two columns, where I can enter text in the left column, and numbers in the right column. It will total the items in the right column and later when I close the "supporting details" box it will put the total in the box I originally selected on the tax form. I have a cell in a monthly expense report that is often empty, occasionally has one item, but once in a while has several items. I only care about having the total in the sheet, but would like to be able to access the details when desired.


I thought this would be a common and easy function for excel to have available, but can't seem to find it anywhere. If it's there I can't find it. Any help would be appreciated.
