Hi

I have a spreadsheet which has qtys of printer toners used in H:H

When I have a toner delivery I want to enter toners delivered in N:N

I then want to be able to push a button on the spreadsheet and the macro will deduct N:N from H:H and then clear the cells in N:N ready for the next toner delivery.

How do I do this

Office 2010

OK that seems to work but it clears the fill colour assigned to column H:H also it doesnt clear the cells in N:N at the end

Cells in N:N are left selected
