Excel/Countdown to 0 with variable value every second


My name is Paul I have this spread sheet and I want to fill boxes the quantity of each box is known, during the filling there are 2 values which can be changed the velocity and the density and depending on their setting a value returns quantity per second, so far I got it covered now I need this quantity to be extracted every second from the known Quantity in the box and it is here were I'm totally lost, once it's gets to "0" in the quantity box a message should pop up "Move to the next box!" and a new box can then be selected and the whole thing starts again hope you can help me, because this thing has been driving me crazy for last couple of weeks, my knowledge about visual basic is zero to none although I have been able to copy and past some code but not really fits my purpose, have also attached a screen shot for better understanding, if I could I would send you the sheet itself thanks in advance
