how to calculate formula in an office 2007 word table
I HAVE RECENTLY PURCHASED OFFICE 2007. MY PREVIOUS OFFICE SOFTWARE WAS 2003.
IN MS WORD OFFICE 2003 I COULD CREATE A TABLE AND THEN INPUT A FORMULA INTO THE TABLE TO DO CERTAIN CALCULATIONS. IN MS WORD OFFICE 2007 IT TELLS ME TO LOOK FOR THE TABLE MENUE AND THEN CLICK FORMULA. SOFAR, I HAVE NOT FOUND THE TABLE MENUE, BUT INSTEAD I USE "CTRLF9" WHICK OPENS THE CALCULATION CODE FIELD IN THE WORD TABLE. FOR THE PURPOSE OF TESTING I HAVE INPUT AS FOLLOWS: {=PRODUCT(1,3,7,9)} THEN TOGGLED "CTRLF9" BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL OTHER FORMULAS BUT COULD NOT GET IT TO WORK. IF ANYBODY COULD TELL ME WHY IT WON'T WORK I WOULD BE VERY MUCH OBLIGED. BEST REGARDS VATI

Perhaps if you stopped SHOUTING it might work?
The formula button is on the Layout tab with your cursor in the table. As for valid fields within a table. Press F9 to update.
