Default DIVIDE NUMBERS EVENLY

I have a worksheet with data. I need to be able to divide a number evenly
between 6 different cells. ie: A1=349.97 then B1 thru F1 should read 58.33
but since the numbers do not divide evenly I need G1 to read 58.32. I also
need H1 to read 0.00 or blank. Please, please, please I need help I have
been trying to figure it out on my own for the past few days!!!
Thank You,

Put this formula in B1:

=ROUND($A1/6,2)

and copy to cells C1:F1. Put this formula in G1:

=A1-SUM(B1:F1)

I'm not sure where H1 comes into it.

Hope this helps.

i THINK IT IS WORKING BUT NOW I WANT THE FIGURES TO SHOW UP IN C1 ONLY IF I
ENTER A DATE INTO B1 IE IF B1 IS BLANK THEN C1 SHOULD BE BLANK, IF 8/19/06 IS
ENTEREDINTO B1 THEN C1 SHOULD HAVE A NUMBER ACCORDING TO THE FORMULA ENTERED.
THANK YOU THANK YOU

It is also unclear what you want in H1 if they are equal blank is no
problem, but if they are not equal what do you wish to do. this assumes
b1 is a date, in your origianl post it is a1/6 but guess that is a
typo.

in c1 if(b10,round($a1/6,2),"")
in G1 if(b10,a1-sum(c1-f1),"")
in H1 If(b1=max(c1:f1),"",what do you want to do if it is not true?)

Regards

Dav
