To total a row or column

  • Do any of the following:

    • To total values in a column, click in the cell below the numbers you're adding, and then click the AutoSum icon on the Tables and Borders toolbar (Figure 7.17).

      Figure 7.17. To create a row or column total, click in the cell to the right of the row or beneath the column, and then click the AutoSum icon.
