Total column using last active cell

I have the following code for totaling a column.

Code:
Dim LR As Long
With Sheets("inventory")
    LR = .Range("e" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
        .Range("e" & LR + 1).Value = WorksheetFunction.Sum(.Range("e1:e" & LR))
End With


The problem is it finds the previous total and places a new total just below it. What I need is to delete the old total and replace with the new total.

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

Can you not just remove +1?

LR is the row your old total is on but in your code you're using "LR + 1". Edit your "LR="-row by adding "-1" to it and your code should do what you're after.

In E1 thru E5, I have then number (1) in each cell.
When I run the macro, I get 5 in E4
If I run again, I get 9 in E4
This is using the -1

Where did you put the -1 to? Here's the code as it should be:
Code:
Dim LR As Long
With Sheets("inventory")
    LR = .Range("e" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row - 1
        .Range("e" & LR + 1).Value = WorksheetFunction.Sum(.Range("e1:e" & LR))
End With
This piece of code replaces the last cell with new sum of everything above it: If you have 1's in E1:E5 this piece of code puts 4 in E5 no matter how many times you run the code.

That removes my last entry in E5.

Here is what I used: Find the last inventory item used row in column (A) the go to column(E) and use that in the sum range and post one cell down.


Dim LR As Long
With Sheets("inventory")
LR = .Range("a" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
.Range("e" & LR + 1).Value = WorksheetFunction.Sum(.Range("e1:e" & LR))
End With

Thanks for your help
