I love your new website look, congrats.  I am looking for an if formula for the table attached.  All I want is an if statement to subtract the previous month from the current month etc
the .
For example:

In beginning month of August  you will subtract
0 minus August number

In September formula will be

September number minus August

and so on...

Thanks and I will also take any advice or comments.

Can you attach/show an example that shows what the required output is? Excel document?

1) Where are these totals to be displayed/inserted into this workbook?  On a separate sheet?  In the same sheet (Sheet1)?

2) Are these example totals derived from the example data?  If so, they do not correspond.

3) There are two years of data shown here (2014, 2015).  How do they relate to your requirement?

IMO, this will be more involved than an IF statement.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Is the attached something like what you would like?

If not, could you post the workbook with the first few numbers pre-filled based on expected results.

The suggestion below won't work for the sample data posted because it doesn't start at zero.

Assuming MTD in column A and YTD in column B and no other numerical values in column A, the value for the current MTD would be the YTD less sum of previous MTD values. So lets assume, your October values are in row 15, the following will give the MTD for October:

=B15-SUM($A$1:A14)   {note the $ in $A$1}

Copy this down each time you need a new MTD value for the given YTD.

Thanks

OK, now looked at attached file. My suggestion was based on data looking like the sample above, I now realise that was how the output was expected. How does the data in the attached file relate to the sample given above?

Thanks
