Hello, in the attached picture you can see that in cell E23 I inserted my budget and in cell E23 I inserted what I actually spent (the same amount) should therefore the result no be -0- ??? why am I getting a DOUBLING result???

My formulas in these examples are =F9-E9 and =F23-E23

I appreciate the time and effort of anyone helping me resolve this.

Grateful, Jose Cruz

You should be able to solve it from this:

`2 + 2 = 42 - 2 = 0(-2) + 2 = 0(-2) - 2 = -4`

Done! Thank you!
You don't have any deposits.

0 (deposit) - 4736.74 (Payment) = (-4736.74)
