    formula -balance forward (xp pro)

    Am attempting to create this form that will provide a running total, commencing with a balance forward. I can not seem to create correct formula at all. balance forward appears in column C
    Formula =+D7-C7+E6
    and does not extend down entire sheet.
    see file attachment below
    thanks chuck1h

    Calculation in your workbook has been set to Manual (in the Calculation tab of Tools | Options). If you set it to Automatic, formulas will be recalculated automatically as you enter data.

    I'd enter the formula =D4-C4 in cell E4 to provide a starting balance.

    Yes, that is OK - it will take the previous balance, subtract the payment and add the charge for the current row.
