    Word shortcut for calculate

    On the QAT, there is a command for calculate which when a group of numeric cells in a table is highlighted it will calculate and show the result in the bottom left hand corner on the status bar.

    Is there a shortcut key for this? Can't seem to find anything.

    Not sure about it showing in the bottom left hand corner. If you highlight the formula's in a table and press the F9 key, the formula's will update. What's the name of the QAT icon?

    I'm not looking to calculate any formulas, these are static numbers. On the QAT, more commands >> all commands >> calculate

    Let say in my table which is just 1 column with 4 rows. All rows contain a number and if you highlight the rows and then press the new command just added to the QAT, down at the bottom left of the screen you will see:

    The result of this calcualation is: sometotal

    Just curios if there is a keyboard shortcut or a ribbon item as I can't find one.

    I tried creating a macro to attach to a key, but it wouldn't gather the data. I did find it has a number of other features, like you can add columns that aren't in tables, at this site:
