Hello John,

Go to Tools>Options>Calc>General and turn on the option "expand references ...". Now you can insert new rows anywhere in the list and directly below the list and all references in formulas, charts, conditional formatting, validation formulas and form controls will follow the new dimensions. SUM(A1:A199) becomes SUM(A1:A200) after insertion of new cells anywhere between row #1 and row #2.
You may define a shortcut to insert an entire new row into the sheet.
You may use a macro of mine which takes care of the above mentioned option and a few other things: The problem would not exist if you would collect all data in a database table which grows and shrinks as you add and remove rows. All references would always refer to the correct amount of rows calculated by the database program or imported into Calc.

Hope this helps

Good Morning

I went to the 'expand references' that you mentioned. It has to do with adding cols or rows and the formulas adjusting for the change. I did not make my self completely clear. I create the checking page with balance, cash flow, others calculations down to line 600. At each month, I break that to allow for totals, and I leave a blank line to show where that month ended. In my income statement page, I want to reference the start and end lines for each month as they are created, so instead of editing a bunch of formulas each month, I want the formula to get its line number for a month from my month/start/end chart. I am not adding lines to the checking page as I enter checks, I am editing existing lines.
