You can format a formula’s results by using the drop-down list of Number Formats in the formula dialog. The available formats are similar to those in Excel, such as Comma, Currency and Percentage.

Updating The Formula

If the figures in the table change, the formula result only updates when you print the document. If you want to see the new result on the screen, you will need to manually update the formula.

ӹTo update a formula’s result: Keyboard

1. Right click on the formula 2. Click on UPDATE FIELD

Paste Function

When you use the PASTE FUNCTION tool into a cell, Word will detect numbers in the cells above and to the left of the current cell and may offer to sum them for you.


Positioning at the bottom of a column of numbers automatically creates a =SUM(ABOVE) function. Positioning to the right of a row of numbers automatically creates a =SUM(LEFT) function. You can also use BELOW and RIGHT to refer to adjacent cells below or to the right of formulas.

Functions You can paste in an Excel function, such as AVERAGE, COUNT or IF from a list contained in the Formula dialog.

Repeating Table Headings

When a table spreads across more than one page, it can be useful to automatically repeat the first row(s) of the table on each page as the first row(s) will often contain headings that apply to the columns of the table. If you choose to repeat table headings, the rows you have chosen will automatically be inserted at the top of each new page the table spreads onto. To edit the heading rows or make formatting changes, you must go back to the top of the table as it is simply an image of the first row(s) on the other table pages.

ӹTo repeat table headings: Mouse

1. Select the row(s) that you wish to repeat at the top of each page that the table prints on. 2. Go to the DATA group on the LAYOUT ribbon and click the REPEAT HEADER ROWS button You will only see the repeating headings when you are in Print Layout or Print preview
