Is there a way to get Onenote (2010) to do simple table math like sum the numbers in a row or column?

The calculating math on the fly for entered text stuff is really cool, but overkill for what I need at the moment. A simple sum($above) or sum($left) would be just fine.

My first thought was embedding an Excel spreadsheet, but that does not seem to be possible. – Bob Jun 13 '12 at 6:23

You can use the Table Sum Add-In; it adds an extra row along the bottom with the column sums.

Simply select the table to be summed and click the button in the Add-In tab of the ribbon strip:
