My co-owner and I share equally all expenses incurred in running a boat .

I would like to construct a spreadsheet showing the running totals incurred by each of us as we buy items and , at the same time , showing which one of us is ahead or behind on a fifty/fifty split on these transactions.

I expect this will be necessary as one of us will be a more frequent purchaser of items than the other due to work commitments.

Ideally I would like to have the relevant balance of costs showing automatically each time a cost is entered by either person.

I have attempted to do this but have got bogged down by formula error messages which I don't understand.

Any help would be appreciated.
