# Running total across multiple columns

I have a column(Column H) which has a running balance going down the sheet.   The balance is made up of values from columns F and G.   i.e   starting balance on line 1 in H is 3200.  In line 2 there is a subtraction of 200 in column G which reduces the balance of H to 3000.  In line 3 there is an addition of 1000 in column F and a subtraction of 300 in column G which means that column H is now 2700.

It is possible to construct a formula which incorporates this process as the column H cell is always dependent on the value of the column H cell on the previous line plus the addition of the column F and G cells on the current line.

Hi Nikolino.

I have attached the sheet.   The original sheet is larger but I have cropped out this portion in relation to the issue.   The current values in Column C(original column H) were pre-populated but the column was missing the original entry of the 3200 which means that all of the following entries need to be adjusted and I hoping that there is global way to do the whole column as opposed to manually changing each entry.    Further, some of the entries in column C are clearly incorrect based upon the pattern.

Thanks Nikolino but Column A is going to add to the total  in column h and column b is going to subtract from the total in column H.

If miss initial 3200 figures will be as in your sample

With initial 3200 (in A2) it's like

Thank you and to the other respondents for the replies and the answer.    I will check the formula on the internet to understand it..
