You want to total everything on the sheet? And you are using the spreadsheet program, or something else? – soandos Nov 29 '11 at 21:35

Try this on a simple file.

  1. Create two sheets. On the first, enter two numbers, and a formula to add them.

    note the formula

  2. On the second sheet, put a number somewhere, then, in another field, type "=", click on the number, click "+", point to the formula in the first sheet. Click.

    you can type in the formula, or use your mouse/pointing device
