# Fast Sum

## If you want a fast and quick sum of figures in a column or row, simply using the following keyboard combination: *ALT=* (Equal sign).

### Notice that after doing the ALT= the forumula range appears, so just hit the Enter key to execute. For example, type in the following numbers in the appropriate cells:

- A1 - 5
- A2 - 5
- A3 - 6
- A4 - 4
- A5 - 2
- Go to A7 and hit the ALT= keys, and hit the Enter key. The addition or sum will be correctly placed without using the formula or the SUM() command.

### This also works for rows and columns. But for different range combinations, you will have to use the formula.
