Hi macropod, I've looked at your beautiful paper, but I can't find exactly where you address this issue. Which section is it in?
Thanks, Ray

Hi Ray,

Relative row addressing in Word is not directly supported. You can get around it with field coding, though. To see how to do this and a wide range of other calculations in Word, check out my Word Field Maths 'tutorial', at:
or
Note: AFAIK There's no practical way to implement a flexible form of relative column addressing.

I have a table in Word 2003, with 100 rows and 10 columns.

Each row contains cells for gross income and for various expenses then the net amount. This formula is from the third row. It is placed in the "i" (9th) column to calculate the net amount of income and expense item:

{=d3-e3-f3-g3-h3 \#"\$#,##0.00;(\$#,##0.00)"}

Then I put it in the fourth row (same column) and each of the 3's are changed to 4's., and so fourth on down the column. Problem is this is an extremely slow and tedious process. I know there is a way to do it automatically. I have done it in the past ..., years ago, but I can't remember how, and I can not find it in any help file or any of the online helps. Please point me in the right direction to repeat the formula (updated for each row) in all the rows of the table.
