# Excel 2010

Posted on 2015-02-12

I have a simple spreadsheet that I can’t figure out.  This is an office fund sheet.  If the employee contributes more or less than the Per Person Charge, I can’t get the correct results.  If employee 1 pay \$40 the formula in cell C8 works, but if employee 1 pay \$20 the formula is wrong.  Paying \$20 C8 should be a negative or red 5, but it positive 5.  I think I got the formula for D6 to work.  Please help.

Thank you,

Walter

I think the formula should just be

=C7-C6

Would not be easier to just show the cumulative difference between what was due and what has been paid?

For C8 use:

=SUM(\$C6:C6)-SUM(\$C7:C7)

and then copy right.

Thanks
