Excel - Formula to get sum of debit/credit in another sheet

Ask a question
MS Office Excel is called a spreadsheet application. The spreadsheet allows an individual to operate numerical statistics. One can perform various calculations and also analyze and forecast. In Excel, various kinds of statistical functions can be applied to the cells. One can also apply mathematical functions to the data. This could be simple, e.g. summing a data column, or complicated, like quantitative analysis. There are complex formulas to do the sum of data in the same or another sheet. The below article details a credit/debit summation formula. One must simply paste this into the cell where a result is desired.


I would be very grateful if anybody could solve my problem. The details are given below:
