Put in your column headings in Row 1, Columns A to E (name, cost, sale price, Profit/loss)
In Row 2 enter name, cost, sale price
In D2 enter =c2-d2
In E2 enter =SUM(D$2:D2)
You should be able to copy the formulas down. In Excel you would hover the cursor over the bottom right of D2 until the cursor turns into a pluss then hold down the mouse buttun and drad down. Do the same with E2.
This may be heresy - lol - but the latest issue of a computer magazine called "ComputerActive" has an excellent article on using Exel to construct spreadsheets for personal financial organisation - Issue 223 - dated31st Aug/13th September - Page 30 - refers. No doubt there are free programmes available to do this for you, but, sadly, my memory isn't what it used to be and I can't remember any.
I've finally got it to Work and it is perfect for what I want, Just a couple of things, Could you tell me how to make the first column a date column and on the column called name which would be the 2nd one now, Is it possible to expand this column sideways so I can Insert Longer named item's ?
