Excel/Excel calculating



How do I have a running total of my stock after each sale?  
For example          1000
     sold          100
Automatically showing          900

How do I get this automatically calculated please?
This is Excel 2010

Thank you,   Gabe

Hi Gabe,

Thanks for sending your question on my way...

Not sure how you have structured your data, so it's little bit hard to give exact solution.

Use SUM or SUMIF function for both Available Stock and Sold Stock something like =Sum($A$1:A1)-Sum($B$1:B1)

In the above formula First Sum will get the Running Total of Available Stock.
Second Sum will get the Running Total of Sold Stock.

So subtracting the both will get the current stock position.
