This is my first time using any sort of spreadsheet so please forgive my ignorance.

Using windows xp
works suite 2002 spreadsheet

ok question about formulas

I am simply trying to add a column, sounds simple I know.

I have followed instructions but cant get it to add
I put numbers in the column, click on the cell under that column where I want the total to be click autosum which dutifully highlights ther correct cells to add, press enter on my keyboard but all I get is the formula not the actual calculation. What am I doing wrong.

Sorry this is so basic but it is driving me crazy.

Many thanks.

Hi croc and welcome to Geeks to Go,

It sounds like you are performing the correct steps. What I would like you to do is to see if you are in 'Formula' view. Open the spreadsheet and look in the View menu and make sure that Formulas does not have a checkmark next to it. If it has, click on it to remove the checkmark. Let us know if this solves your problem. :whistling:
