How Can I Create a "Stamp" of An Original Value?
I'm trying to create a rule/process whereby every time a row gets added (not changed), another cell gets "stamped" with the value. This is so I can have the stamped column as a reference of the Original value.
In my scenario, it's a Total. So a row will get added, and in that row is a Total Column. I want to create a copy of that value, and store it in another column ("Original Total"), and never have it change after it's original entry. That said, the Total column can/will change.
The other nuance is that I'm trying to update this based on a Master -> Child Sheet relationship, where the Master has the Total row, and the Child contains the Original Total. The Master Sheet gets wiped clean every Month, so there's always a "new" Original Total that needs to get re-populated in the Child Sheet - hopefully that makes sense. I've been trying to use DataMesh, and it works when the Original Total is blank (so the first run), but if the Original Total has a value in it from the previous run, it skips updating it, and that's where I run into my issue. I have the "old" Original Total value, and need to update it based on this new data load in the Master Sheet, but I don't know how to tell it - it's a brand new Total, update it, or it's a changed Total, don't update it.
Hopefully part of this makes sense - it's a difficult one to explain. Thank you for any / all help.
