Can I sum a column or row of numbers in Word Online?

If you’re familiar with the desktop version of Word, you know you can use formulas to perform calculations such as summing a column or row of numbers in a table. Word Online preserves formulas already in your document, but it doesn’t yet provide a way to add them.

If you have the desktop version of Word, use the Open in Word command to open the document and insert the formula.

When you’re done and you save the document, it will continue to store the formula when you open it in Word Online.
