My laptop HD crashed a week or so ago. My "TF Want List" d-base was on there and on my hand held. Sadly, the version on the palm did not have the equations to calculate my monthly expenditures. I can not remember how I did it the first time, sadly. I will attach a screen capture in a moment to show how I have it set up so I am not attempting to describe everything. The algorithms worked something like this, however. The numeric value cells in "L" referenced the dates just above them in "L" (set manually). Each also "looked" for instances of the same string in "D". When found, it would take the corresponding value in "E" and add it into the value for "L" and continue searching "D" for additional instance of the same date string and continue adding those corresponding values from "E" so I had a running monthly total that would change as I added and subtracted entries. Does anyone have anything like this so I can restore my d-base to its former glory? All of the numeric values that are in "L" are done by hand right now and have just been zeroed out until I can correct my algorithms. All that is further below what is shown on the screen capture is a grand total area and additional months. Also, I am sorry about the size of the image but I wanted to make sure I was showing everything.
