That is Select the Cells which you want to SUM and Press Alt+=

This will bring the total just below the selected cells.

If Access is anything like Excel, you can put in one of the cells: =SUM(A1:A5) If I remember rightly. That will add all the values from A1 to A5 together and display it. Alternatively, you can do =SUM( and then select all the values you wish to add together with your mouse by dragging, or selecting individually by holding CTRL whilst individually selecting. Hope this helps, because I'm only going under the assumption that Access is similar to Excel. Either way, you will need to use a formula similar to the one I just showed you.

How do i insert a formula in a column to add each number & give a total at the bottom?


For example, you have three numbers from A1 to A3. On row A4, type =SUM(A1:A3).

That should do it. :)

CAN GET COLUMNS TO ADD UP AND GIVE TOTAL ONLY GET SUBTOTALS


Use the function =sum() to add numbers. To sum, for example, all of column A, enter in the formula bar =sum($A:$A). You can use the subtotal function within the range you are adding and the answer will not count towards the final total.

BASIC EXCEL FORMULA


Are you looking to solve any particular problem?--- because there are a huge number of possible formulas in Excel.

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

Suppose you have the following numbers typed into your Excel spreadsheet:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3
2 10 4
3 15 2
4 1 2 3


Then suppose you type in the following formulas (in the D column):

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 =A1+B1
2 10 4 =A2-B2
3 15 2 =A3*B2
4 1 2 3 =sum(A4:C4)


Then the following answers will appear in the D column:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 23
2 10 4 6
3 15 2 30
4 1 2 3 6
