In excel we have just two cells. Enter a value in cell #1 and it's value is then added to the current value in cell #2. Then cell #1 is zeroed out, and the value in Cell#2 remains as is... Now enter a new value in cell#1, which then updates the value in cell#2, and thus cell #1 is again zeroed out, and cell #2 has a new value which keeps accumulating (for positive numbers)...Is this possible to do in excel without creating (over time) a huge list of numbers.....??????

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim rngBereich As Range

Set rngBereich = Range("A1")

If Not Application.Intersect(Target, rngBereich) Is Nothing Then

Target.Offset(1).Value = Target.Offset(1).Value + Target.Value
Target.Value = ""

End If

End Sub

Maybe with these lines of code. In the attached file you can enter a number in cell A1 and cell A2 is updated accordingly.

Thank you very much. Now to learn VBA. Be well.
