## Formula in Word Table

 Stuart Mattinson external usenet poster Posts: 1 Formula in Word Table

I am trying to create a formula that will span multipule tables, I am running
a merge option that will create duplicate tables within a word document with
the following formula at the end of each table =sum(b3)+(b4)+(b5).

My problem comes in that I never know how many tables will be created and I
need to add all of these totals together from each table to create a Grand
Total.

What formula would I use to add all the tables together, the cell that I
would need to add in each table is b6

I would use a macro containing the following code:

Dim i As Long, total As Double
Dim rsum As Range
total = 0
With ActiveDocument
For i = 1 To .Tables.Count
Set rsum = .Tables(i).Cell(6, 2).Range
rsum.End = rsum.End - 1
If IsNumeric(rsum.Text) Then
total = total + rsum.Text
End If
Next i
End With
MsgBox "The total of all cells B6 is " & total

--
Hope this helps.

Dear Doug,

Thanks for the Macro, would it possible to make the macro automatically
place the Words "Grand Total" and the calculated amount after the last table
rather than a message box

As it is a macro should I create a shortcut key for the users to press when
they want to run it as it should only be run after the merge?

I was able to add the amount in by adding a bookmark and the following lines

ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("GrandTotal").Select
Selection = "R" & total

I was not able to force the decimal place to be 2 characters only though, so
will keep on wotking on that

Use Format(total, "#,###.00")
