Automated subtraction

Occasional Visitor

Hi, 

 

I want to apply a condition / or any solution without using a third cell to automate and reduce (Subtract) the amount (number) from B1 by the value of A1. 

There is value in B1, I want to put a Value in A1 and want it to be reduced in B1, BUT I don't want to use a third cell for it or Tables. anyone to help?

This makes no sense. Where does the value in B1 come from? Someone must have entered it. But if your definition for B1=x-A1, when someone enters "10<ENTER>" in B1, he would see 10-A1 pop up. That would throw any user. Unless B1 is a hard-wired constant, in which case your formula in B1 would simply say =10-A1.
