This video explains how to use formulas in Word
One of the features of Microsoft Word is the ability to insert and calculate formulas in a table. This can be useful for creating invoices, budgets, reports, and other documents that involve numerical data. Here are the steps to use formulas in a table in Word:

1. Create a table by clicking on the Insert tab and selecting Table. You can choose the number of rows and columns you need, or draw a custom table with the mouse.
2. Enter your data in the table cells. You can format the numbers as currency, percentage, decimal, or other types by clicking on the Home tab and selecting Number Format.
3. To insert a formula in a table cell, click on the cell where you want the result to appear. Then click on the Layout tab under Table Tools and select Formula.
4. A dialog box will appear where you can enter your formula. You can use standard mathematical operators like +, -, *, and /, as well as functions like SUM, AVERAGE, COUNT, and others. You can refer to other cells in the table by using their row and column labels, such as B2 or C3. You can also use the RnCn notation, where n is the number of the row or column, such as R2C3.
5. Click OK to insert the formula in the cell. The result will appear in the cell and update automatically if you change the data in the table.
6. To edit or delete a formula, click on the cell that contains it and select Formula from the Layout tab again. You can modify or clear the formula in the dialog box.
7. To copy a formula to other cells in the table, select the cell that contains the formula and drag the fill handle (the small square at the bottom right corner of the cell) to the cells you want to fill. The formula will adjust to the new cell references automatically. Word tutorial. This video explains how to use formulas in Word.
