# Remaining Budget

✭✭✭✭✭
edited 12/09/19

Good evening:

I have broken down my Project Budget and spent a total of 13% of my Budget. I have used the formula to get the total sum (13%). However, I am challenged with adding to the  formula to get the remaining budget of 87%.

Sum Formula: =SUM(CHILDREN())

Thanks for the help in advance!

Hi Kam,

Try something like this.

1=100% and Spent2 is the cell for the SUM of Spent.

=1 - Spent2

Have a fantastic week!

Best,

Hi Kam,

Yes, Andrée is correct, if you're currently getting the value 13% and would like to achieve the difference in a separate cell you could achieve this utilizing a formula similar to Andrée's example above:

=1 - [13% Column Name]1

Have a wonderful day. Thank you for contacting Smartsheet Support.
