Hi Sue,
That's a pretty vague description, but never let it be said that I don't like a challenge, so I'll have a go.
Let's say you have 3 columns:
 Checkbox (Checkbox format)
 Amount Before (Text/Number format)
 Amount After (Text/Number format)
You'll want to put your formula in the column you are "moving" the amount into. You are not technically moving anything to Amount After, just referencing the value in Amount Before.
The formula you need to enter in the first row of the Amount After column is:
=IF(Checkbox1,[Amount Before]1,"")
I'd copy this formula down a few rows and lock the Amount After column (rightclick on the column header and choose Lock) to ensure nobody accidentally edits/deletes your formula.
The formula will copy itself down the Amount After column as new rows are populated.

You won't be able to "move" an amount perse, but if you use Chris' formula in the Amount Outstanding column it should copy that amount to that column if the checkbox is ticked. Otherwise, that amount will be 0.

Thank you
will try this.
