Excel - Cell always to be a certain value but use another cell's value in the formula

Excel - Cell always to be a certain value but use another cell's value in the formula

Excel - Cell always to be a certain value but use another cell's value in the formula

(OP)
How can I make the value of a cell be a certain amount but use the amount of another cell and then add the difference to the value I want. To make things simple. Let's say that I want the "target" cell to always equal 1 million but the other cell is 250K. How can I create a formula to grab the 250K and know to add 750K to make the "target" cell 1 million.

Never mind I figured it out.
