I am wondering if there is a way to create a sum total in Microsoft Excel for a cumulative range. I have attached a version of the table so that you can see what I mean.
So right now, the total column on the left is set to sum total the row, which is great. But each consecutive row is actually cumulative, not individual. So right now, the first row has a total of $500 and the third row has a total of $800, because the $500 from C4 is the same $500 from C2, not an additional $500.
All I want to do is make the last total (where the 2 totals meet - in this example B7) show the total based on which cell has value. So if there is value in B2, the total in B7 will show that. But if there is a new value in B3, then the total in B7 should then reflect B3 instead of B2. I cannot do a simple sum because this would reflect more (as all of the totals are cumulative).
I know that I can select the B7 total reflect the value by entering "=(cell)", however I am working with a large quantity of figures and worksheets, so I would prefer that Excel do this automatically. Especially if I have to go back and edit one figure in the table at a later date.
