Excel/Excel formula query


Hi, hope I can explain this without a diagram, but here goes. I'm looking for a forumal to assist my spreadsheet work.

Lets say,

In column A, line 1 I have a quoted figure of 100.

Then in column B line 1, I put the letter Y (for yes).

When I put the letter Y into that column I would like the quoted 100 to appear in column C.

If this is possible, I would also like it so that if I put a letter N (for no) into that cell (instead of Yes) then a standard  (never changing) total of 70.00 is added to column C.

I currently do have the latter set up, and the formula is placed in the C column (the totals column) and is this: - =if(a="N",70,0)

This means that when I answer N, I get 70 in the total column. So., Ideally I would like to get the quoted amount (which would be in column A, line 1) to be added to the totals column if the answer is Yes, and/or
the 70.0 added to to the totals if the answer is N.  

Hope this makes sense!

I am using Excel 2003.
