I have column headings "due date", "total" and "discount" I want one column to be added as "adjusted balance"
Now adjusted balance = "total" - "discount"
Due date Total. Discount. Adjusted
1/11/15. 12 12. 0
1/12/15. 35. 35. 0
1/01/16. 1535. 0. 1535
Copy due date, total, adjusted columns to another sheet
Assume the first zero is in D2
the formula would be
then drag fill down.
I would copy all four columns and in the other sheet do a paste special values (in Excel 2007 and later paste values is a menu option) so the formulas are replaced with the value they produce. Then delete the discount column.
