    If one needs to add (summarize) multiple cells in a WS, it can be done in a very easy way and it will even Sum ranges in multiple Rows/Columns (Horizontally/Vertically).
    All you need is to select ALL(!) the cells in which you need to present the Totals and click the Auto-Sum button [?] (Sigma icon) or, even easier, the keyboard shortcut: ALT+.
    The SUM function will be added to all the selected cells.

      Due to some limitations of the page/interface - the shortcut should read:
      [ALT+=] [ALT with the Equal key].

    Double-click the fill handle (instead of dragging) to fill a column with the selected formula or contents. Much faster when filling a long column!
