Q. How can I use other cells in formulas?
A. There may be other ways to use Word like a spreadsheet but this is how I do it.
- Bookmark any value you want to use later in a calculation.
Select it. Then do Insert > Bookmark and pick a reasonable name
Do not pick name that looks like a cell - eg B7.
You'll be fine if you only use letters - eg mybookmark
- If you just want another copy of the bookmarked value do:
Insert Reference > Cross Reference > Bookmark and select the bookmark
- To use the bookmarked value in a calculation do:
Insert > Field > Formula
and enter a formula for example:
= mybookmark * 8
Unlike a spreadsheet values don't automatically change when their source does.
Right click and select Update Field.
Or select all with Ctrl-A and press F9.
