I'd like to know how to set up a formula to put my weight in whenever in a
cell and have excel tell me if its a gain or loss and have it doing it cumulative. Example If I weigh 120 and the next time I put in a weight I'm 122 the answer says 2 then the next time I put in 124 the answer would be 4 then the next time I put in 123 the answer would be 3 etc. in chart form running vertically.

Hi
If you put your start weight in A1, and then your subsequent weights in cells below this, from A2 onward, then in cell B2 =IF(A2="","",A2$A$1) Copy down column B as far as required. The cells in column B will remain blank, until there is a corresponding value in column A.  Regards Roger Govier "Yaka" wrote in message ...

lRoger, thank you so much... the formula works . however when I copy down
column B the original weight I put in the formula copies all the way down. What did I do wrong?.
