    Table sum keystrokes? (XP)

    I recall from years ago (I don't recall what version of Word) a somewhat undocumented keystroke combination in Word for summing a column of numbers within a table.
    The result of the sum would flash in the status bar and was loaded, unformatted, into the clipboard to be pasted if desired.

    I'm now using XP and can't reproduce the keystrokes to do this.

    Does anyone know of this and if it still exists?

    It's a built-in command named ToolsCalculate; you can assign it to a custom keyboard shortcut or toolbar button.

    To assign to a toolbar button:
    Select Tools | Customize...
    Activate the Commands tab.
    Select "All Commands" in the Categories list.
    Scroll down the Commands list until you see ToolsCalculate.
    Drag this command to a toolbar.

    To assign a keyboard shortcut:
    Select Tools | Customize...
    Click Keyboard...
    Select "All Commands" in the Categories list.
    Scroll down the Commands list until you see ToolsCalculate.
    Select this command, then click in the "Press new shortcut key" box.
    Press the keyboard shortcut you want, then click Assign.
