Calculating Columns in Word

Wordtables

Most people use Excel, some don't for their own reasons. Either way, the time will come when you need to do some calcs in Word.?

Fear not, it's not particularly hard.?

  • Whilst having the cursor on the cell in your table that you want the calculated number to go in, click Layout from Table Tools.
  • In the Layout ribbon, click the Formula icon. This will bring up a small formula window. The formula you enter will be entered into your selected cell. Depending where your cell is, it may have done a calculation for you. If not, you can enter it.
  • A common function is SUM(). You need to use your imagination a little and imagine the table is a spreadsheet. Columns are letters, rows are numbers. See the picture for an example.
Hope that helps.?
