Recalculate Column

Select menu: Spread | Calculate | Recalculate

This dialog lists the columns within a spreadsheet that have been created using a calculation. Columns can be calculated using a calculation menu. This dialog allows the calculation to be changed, and then rerun to recreate the column values. For example, if column C was generated as the sum of columns A and B, and if some values in either column A or B were changed, the new sum could be calculated and put into column C. Alternatively, if you wanted to add in another column (D) into the sum the calculation could be changed to A+B+D.

A column that has been calculated can also be displayed using the Column Attributes/Format dialog.

  1. From the menu select Spread | Calculate | Recalculate.

Recreate the column via the calculation displayed.

Close the dialog and do not make any changes.
