Inventory Management
I'm trying to find a way to remove inventory when an order is sold, other than manually changing the numbers. I have a form set up to add new orders to the bottom of the sheet. I need a formula to automatically remove the inventory items from each line in the Sold column. Example:
Customer #1 bought 5 items of my Stock #2. I need it to change the 0 in the Sold column to 5 on line 3.
It also needs to be able to update when another order is added. Example:
Customer #3 bought 35 items from Stock #2. So now the 5 would be changing to 40 (in the Sold column on line 3).

Ok. So to pull a total of all items removed for Stock #2...
=SUMIFS(color:color, [WH Location]:[WH Location], [Stock #]@row)
Then we subtract that from your starting stock and that should do it for you.
=[In Stock]@row  SUMIFS(color:color, [WH Location]:[WH Location], [Stock #]@row)
NOTE: This is assuming you are putting the formulas in the [Remaining Stock] column.

Where do you determine your starting inventory, or would you be manually entering that into the formula? The formula is very possible by the way. Just need a few quick details worked out first such as the previous question.

Starting inventory would be the "In Stock" column.
