Using Formulas in Tables

Within a Word table cell you can use a small subset of Excel functions for performing

numeric calculations. Word identifies cells in a table in the same way that Excel does: a

letter/number combination that specifies the column and row, beginning with cell A1 in the

upper left corner of the table.

To enter a formula at the insertion point, on the Layout tab (under Table Tools), click

Formula in the Data group. The Formula dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 8-7.
