I'm not exactly sure what you're asking, but I think the answer to your question is that sometimes the molecule itself is an ion, and so after adding up the charges of the atom's themselves, you have to subtract or add electrons based on the charge (i.e. if its a 2+ molecule you have to remove 2 electrons from whatever the sum of the valence electrons of the atoms making up the molecule are).
