Hi,

 

What kind of formulas would you like to use. Can you tell me in words what you are trying to calculate?

Example - @Sum(J281+ k286)   My mac will not except this type of add.
I can only add across or up and down.

Expert:  John D replied 8 years ago.

Ok, in Excel you need to start all formulas with an equal sign. So the above formula should be entered as:

 

=SUM(J281 + K286)

 

or simply

 

=J281 + K286

 

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
