Chapter 16. Using Word Tables > Placing a Formula in a Table

Placing a Formula in a Table

You can also place formulas in your tables that can do a variety of calculations. You can add cells to show a total, calculate an average, and do statistical calculations such as max and min, which return the maximum or minimum (respectively) from a list of numbers.

Before working with formulas, however, you should become familiar with how cell addresses are determined. Each column in the table is given a letter designation starting with A. So, the first column is A, the second is B and so on. The first row in the table is 1. The second row would be 2 and so on. The first cell in a table, which is in column A and row 1 would be cell A1. Each cell's address is the column letter followed by the row number.
