Is it possible to find what the Sum of the contents of a colume in Word 2007 add up to,like you can in Excel, when some of the cells in the columns have no contents. I hope this makes sense to you!

Add a row to the bottom of the table.

Click in that new row.

Press CTRL + F9

This should appear: { }

Inside those curly brackets type

=SUM(ABOVE)

Press F9

tonyq,

If you use the option, from the Table drop-down menu, to insert a Formula and choose =SUM(ABOVE) the total will be displayed in the cell containing the formula, but only until an empty cell is encountered. You can alter the formula to =SUM(C2:C7), where C is the third column of the table and Row 2 to 7 contain the cells to be summed. It won't matter if they contain numbers or are empty and you can even have the total in a different column or row. Use Alt-F9 to toggle the cell between Formula and Result and use F9 to update the Result.

Peter.
