View Full Version : Using Formulas in Tables in Word 97



08-04-2001, 04:00 PM
I am creating an invoice form in Word. I have no problem in creating fields with formulas to add or multiply. What I can't get to work is creating a formula to take a $ amount from a cell and multiply by 12.5% for GST to deliver a GST figure on the goods.
Be grateful if someone has been successful with a formula I can use.
I have tried =PRODUCT(0.125,D10) where D10 is the cell I am operating on, it contains the nett amount, I want the GST on the nett amount.
Also tried =(12.5%D10)

Try =(D10)*0.125

Thanks Brent.
That does deliver the GST amount but I cannot get a consistant entry in this field. As I tab thru the fields it does not necessarily register a figure here.
Is it sequence dependent? Does it need a trigger?
I am not to conversant with the complexities of formulas in tables.
