    Formulas in Tables (Word 2003)

    I have been asked to create a blank table with a cost column which is to contain a formula which will automatically add all the figures together once the numbers are known and entered into the table. Could someone please advise me on how this should be done - checked on Word help - not a lot of use.

    Hi,

    Take a look at my 'tutorial' document attached to <post#=365442>post 365442</post#>. There's a lot of material in there for tables.

    Cheers

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Although you can create formulas in a Word table, they don't update themselves automatically. Excel is better suited for this kind of thing. If the user doesn't want to use an Excel workbook, you can embed an Excel table in a Word document - the button to the right of the "Insert Table" button on the Standard toolbar is "Insert Microsoft Excel Worksheet". Formulas in Excel will update themselves automatically.
