I have a form that I scribble in when counting loose threads. I am trying to digitize that form while keeping it's current design for the sake of simplicity. I desire to put text boxes around a circle at top, left, bottom and right-then I enter a count in each text box and have Excel subtotal in the center. I would have a total of 12 sets of 5 circles each. Eventually, I will add the subtotals together in sets. I am able to draw text boxes into the existing form, but I haven't been able to get Excel to get the values from the four text boxes and add them up. I can do all kinds of operations with data in columns and rows, but I don't seem to be able to do basic math operations with data that is scattered. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am happy to watch all the tutorials out there, but time is limited. If anyone can provide hints that will get me closer to my goal, it would be greatly appreciated.
