I maintain a travel long of every road trip in a spreadsheet. I then duplicate (copy) the previous spreadsheet that best matches the last road trip, since most of the entries are the same.
In this case, I have a duplicated a spreadsheet with 23 rows. The top most row is the header row and the bottom most row is the totalling row.
Formulas in the totalling row:
Cell B23 → =((A22+B22)-(A2+B2))
Cell C23 → =C22-C2
Now, in this road trip, I have deleted the rows from 19 to 22.
The problem is that whenever I insert or delete any rows, the formulas in the totalling row do not automatically get updated. I then manually have to correct each and every formula by updating the cell range.
In this case, I have edited the above formulas to:
Cell B19 → =((A18+B18)-(A2+B2))
Cell C19 → =C18-C2
I believe this problem has been carried forwarded while using MS Office. Earlier, it was working absolutely fine and then one day, the formulas stopped auto updating. And in the meantime, my Office 365 subscription expired, and I switched to LibreOffice, but the problem still persists.
I am unable to figure out if this problem is embedded in the spreadsheet or there something is wrong with the program settings.
