Can I highlight a column and total it (like in MS Spreadsheet) with a calc button or do I have to manually enter a formula?

Thanks for help!

Hi,

Do you mean: how to Sum all of the rows in a column (for example: the A1:A1048576 cellrange) with a few click??
Or you mean a manually selected (highlighted) cellrange?

Either/or. I just want to be able to do this without putting in a formula.

Thanks for help!

If you want to sum a manually selected (highlighted) cellrange:

1. Click on target cell
2. click on SUM icon on the toolbar,
3. highlight the desired cellrangerange with mouse,
4. hit Enter.

My problem was that I couldn't find the formula bar. Everything is working great now. Thanks so much for your help!

Check the "View" - "Toolbars" - "Formula bar" if you switched it off, accidentally...

How to sum if you have special values like
12,34 km
23,45 km
....
SUM(A1:Ax)

Solved by myself. There was some paste problem, that's why it didn't do it first time.

My silly oversight :lol: Column of numbers would not sum.
After several minutes, too many, I realized that even the column showed the numbers as $24.00, they were actually text.
Looking at the value of the cell, is was displayed as '$24.00. Notice the ' before the value, if you have not been bitten by this yet :) .
This can happen when you import data from the web.
Here is a fix i copped and keep handy:

Apply any number format other than "@" (text)
menu:Find&Replace...
[More Options...]
[X] Current Selection
[X] Regular expression
Search: .+ (a dot and a plus)
Replace: &
[Replace All]

Hope this helps

This only happens when you ignore the import options on the dialog that is shown when pasting.
