I'm often puzzled by suggestions such as this. In what way do you think that =SUM(Xm-Yn) differs from =Xm-Yn? The minus sign effects the subtraction between two values, generating a single value as its result. You then pass this single value to the SUM() function. What do you expect that function do with a single value? The sum of two and two is four; what do you think is the sum of just two?
