Cell A2 holds a value of $100.  Cell A1 is a cell used when an expense is made.  So, say we spent $10.  I want to enter $10 in cell A1 and have cell A2 automatially update to $110.  Or, i'd just like to be able to type over the $100 in cell A2 with $10 and have it know to add $100  + $10 to give me $110.

If you do not change the locations described above then you can try this macro

Right-click on the sheet tab name
Select View code
Paste this code in the VBA window
Close the VBA window

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = Range("A1").Address Then [a2] = [a1] + [a2]
End Sub

Open in new window

That seemed to work.  Is there a way then to clear cell A1?

Try this....is this what you mean?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = Range("A1").Address Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
[a2] = [a1] + [a2]
Range("A1").ClearContents
Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
End Sub

Open in new window

yes, but one more thing. Below is my code i'd like this code to work for the cells below as well.  For example, i'd like D11 = B11 + D11

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = Range("B10").Address Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
[D10] = [B10] + [D10]
Range("B10").ClearContents
Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
End Sub

You should present all your requirements to start with instead of putting a new one every time you get a solution.

Try this...not tested

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.column =2 and target.row >9 Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
target.offset(0,2) = target + target.offset(0,2)
target.ClearContents
Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
End Sub
