 Posted: Tue Oct 04, 2011 8:10 am    Post subject: It is as simple as A-B, or almost... A few basic rules: A calculation formula starts with the equals sign. Entered values are referenced by their position in the cell grid, specified by column letter and row number. (You can enter a reference into a formula by mouse click) To enter monetary values, type amount only (not currency). Otherwise it may be interpreted as text, and its computational value is not always what it seems... So if you have amounts entered in cells A1 and B1, enter this formula in C1: =B1-A1
