Get latest Record and reverse last record with Negative

Hello All,

I am Pulling time sheet work detail data every 5 minutes inserting into my master table , previously I was doing differences in minutes if I insert , meaning if an employee sends 50 minutes on 5/11 and then changes to 30 mins on 5/11 I would show 50 mins  on 5/11 and -20 on 5/11,this works fine but does not work perfect if date worked changes,

so when I have any differences or changes in minutes I would like for it to behave this way. if an employee sends 60 mins on 5/11 and then changes to 40 mins on 5/11, I would like to see these record in my table

5/11 60mins
5/11 -60 mins
5/11 40 mins.

I would like assistance and just a general of how I can do this. Thank you

Logic something like this though you will want to add some error checking and wrap the two inserts in a transaction.

DECLARE @Date   DATETIME,
   @NewMIn   INT;

INSERT INTO myTable (Date, Min)
SELECT Date, -SUM(Min)
FROM myTable
WHERE Date = @Date
GROUP BY Date

INSERT INTO myTable (Date, Min)
VALUES (@Date, @NewMin)

So, what you are saying is that if a record for that day already exist that you'll need to add the opposite operation to cancel it before adding the correct value, right?
Then, just verify before inserting the new value and if exists then insert first the negative operation:
IF EXISTS(SELECT 1 
        FROM TableName
        WHERE EmployeeID = @ID AND ColDate = @Date AND ColValue > 0)
            INSERT INTO TableName (EmployeeID, ColdDate, ColValue)
            SELECT EmployeeID, ColDate, (-1*ColValue)
            FROM TableName
            WHERE EmployeeID = @ID AND ColDate = @Date AND ColValue > 0

INSERT INTO TableName (EmployeeID, ColdDate, ColValue)
VALUES (@ID, @Date, @Value)
