I saw that the calculator option for MS office 2007 & 2003 is available but I can’t find it in MS office 2010. Any help?
The Windows XP basic Calculator does not work properly with the Office 2010 clipboard. If you copy from the XP Calculator, you inactivate the entries already copied in your Office 2010 clipboard. Frustrating.
Is this what you are looking for?
It is a recent MUO post that allows you to do simple calculations in MS Word.
To get to that section, click on the Office Button, Options, or Word Options and you should be able to see it somewhere (not to sure otherwise, these is only going off my memory of Office 2010)
Nope, that guy who created that article didn't know about 2010 'Calculate' command and the comments are closed, so I will reply here.
It took me 30 mins or so to find work it out, mostly by luck.
Ok. There are two ways to incorporate it into word, the first is how it works in Word 2007; while the second way you can incorporate it into its own tab or into an existing tab.
With MS office word 2010 open, right click on the customisable area in the very top left corner i.e. ontop of the undo or save buttons. From the short menu which displays select 'Customise quick access toolbar...'. This will open up the word options window. Continue to step 2.
In MS office word 2010, you go to the (word) 'File' button, then 'Options', then 'Customise ribbon', continue to step 2.
If you decided to add 'Calculate' to its own or an existing menu tab then you can probably work this out for yourself, I was able to move its position in the options window between groups, except it would not be in the ribbon position on the menu tab where I placed it. Fairly straight forward.
From the right drop down box tilted 'Choose commands from:' select the option 'Commands Not in the Ribbon'.
Then scroll down the list directly underneath and you will notice 'Calculate' which is right under 'Bullets Numbers...' and its alphabetical order so you can't miss it. Highlight it with your mouse.
Next on the right of the 'Word options' window you have open, you will see the drop down box which will be titled either 'Customise the Ribbon:' or 'Customise quick access toolbar', depending on whether you followed method 1 or 2. (Note: If your a newbie, follow the first method and continue reading, otherwise go back to the second method and continue reading.)
Select the drop box and ensure to select 'For all documents (default)', then click the 'Add>>' button and then 'OK'. And your good to go.
Does anyone know how to get it to enter the answers to the calculation?
By answers to the calculations, I mean to have it automatically enter the value into the word document.
What about the default Windows Calculator? Won't do?
There are some other free calculator apps as well,
