What you can do is have 1 column for the players they've bought and the prices and then the column next to it that is an IF function that is IF column X equals "" then 1, else Column X. Check Excel Help for the exact syntax.

That isn't correct. If you have four players left and four dollars, 4-4 would equal zero which would not be the max bid. It should be Money Left minus Players Left plus one. If you have you have 4 dollars minus 4 players plus one would give you $1 as your max bid.
