Finally got the DSL
Called me an old timer but finally I have got the DSL connection that I always wanted. Although the speed is not pretty good but the DSL company told me that the speed will pick up in 10 days.

Running Total Example (Fixed)

I worked on the problem and found a simple solution. The solution to this problem is to iterate through the textboxes and calculate ......
