I need a way of putting in a payment that goes solely to the principle balance of the loan.  I need to put it in a separate column in the Loan Data tab, and have it generate in the Monthly Report tab without messing up the way the information in the report tab works....going to be very complicated.  I can have the payment info in a different cell than C17, but preferably not.  I am attaching the spreadsheet, it is an amortization schedule for a loan.

Changed data sheet

Column C to include the total of principal only and payment
IF('Monthly Report'!$A$17='Loan Data'!B18,'Loan Data'!F18+D18,"")

Column E to input the date if the principal only amount is filled
IF(F18>0,B18,IF(D18>0,B18,""))

Cell I18 to subtract payments made the first day from just the principal
IF(F18=0,$H$9,H9-F18)

The remaining column I cells to subtract principal only payments
IF(F19>H18+G19,I18-F19+G19+H18-D19,I18-D19)

The only thing I noticed was on the report tab, there isn't a spot that shows the principal payment yet.  :)
