    I have a small spreadsheet which I use to track my vacation and sicks days. Currently I use conditional formatting to hide each weeks data until the end of the pay period. The one thing I haven't been able to figure, though, is how to prevent a =SUM formula from executing until a specific date is reached. I'd like to end my vacation days early, but when I do the formula kicks in and immediately adjust my totals, rather than waiting until the pay period is over.
    EX: If I enter any values in columns C:M, the formula in column Q immediately deducts the amount from Q30. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

    Your sheet pretty does what you says for Q30.
    Btw, what is your excel version?

    Excel 2007.
    Since I posted, I did manage to get most of the result I wanted by using the calculation in cell O24 and applying it to cells C:M. I was just wondering if there was a more efficient way to complete the action.

    Thanks,
