Description Gerson 2016-08-04 16:54:43 UTC
For instance, I have to file a report, where I list some numbers in tables. I can easily sum up a column and keep the sum updated in a table cell using formulas. I can even create formulas mixing cells from different tables:




But I can only do that in tables!

My suggestion is to allow us to refer to the table cells in formulas included in the main text. Anywhere. 

In my case, on the main text of the report I want to refer to total sum of some tables, and I would like to keep the numbers automatically updated in the main text.
