    Hi Jim,

    What you should do is to delete everything that are related to mileage column in conditions before you delete whole column itself in order to prevent any negative effects. 

    Here is what you should do with the conditions:

    1. Please delete the condition that calculates the total value of cells in mileage column:

    2. Please delete the mileage total part on the condition that calculates TOTAL:

    3. Then delete the mileage total field and all the cells in the column. This should ensure that your calculation is not affected by any changes you'll make.
