From: Otto Moehrbach on 16 Mar 2010 14:10 Ask questions. If you are still unsure of what to do with the macros, you can send me an email and I'll send you the file I generated for this.

From: Bowmanator on 16 Mar 2010 14:25 Otto, i figured out how to insert and run the marcos and it works great but i have a couple questions for you. 1. what would i need to change in the marcos if i wanted to add more columns? what it will look like is this A B C D E F 1 date lot# amount previous crrent total 2. there is a possability that the amount would be less then 1000 is there something i can change? learning is great but tuff. thanks "Otto Moehrbach" wrote: > The macros below do what you want.

From: John on 16 Mar 2010 16:28 Hi Bowmanator I'm glad to see you're going with Otto's macro. I tried different things but to no avail. To crack this one, we would need help from the community if it can be done with formulas. You need to go below 1000, that brings more problems, the first one I sent you will go below 1000 only if the total with the balance is over 1000. Hope that Otto can fixe that for you. Let us know if you get it working.

From: Otto Moehrbach on 17 Mar 2010 14:54
Re your first question. What and where the code does hangs on the location of the Target cell. In your case, the Target cell is the Amount cell. That was in Column B. If you want to change that to Column C, change the 2 to a 3 in this line in the first macro: If Target.Column = 2 Then Re your second question. That would involve a bit more. Exactly what would you do, manually, if the amount was less than 1000. Consider both the situation where the amount plus the WhatsLeft is more than 1000 and less than 1000. WhatsLeft is the amount in the previous row and 3 columns to the right of the Target cell (the 53 and 72 in your examples).
