I have only minimal experience with spreadsheets like Excel. Here's what I'd like to do, if anyone can offer suggestions... I'd like to have a budget category with the monthly allowance at the top of a column. I'd like to be able to input the amount of purchases in the boxes below. Ideally, I'd like to have a box for a running total somewhere so that with each entry, the updated amount remaining is automatically shown. Hopefully, that makes sense. Seems like it should be easy, but I can't seem to get it to happen. Ideas? Thx.
