### Calculating data in rows and columns

Using PerfectExpert, you can calculate data in rows and columns. For example, you can add a column, find the average of a list of figures, or find the middle value of either. This is an example of the Quick Math feature automatically entering a formula into a cell to calculate a column of values.

You can also perform calculations on individual cells.

Quattro Pro also lets you perform calculations on two rows or columns. In this example, the cell in last row of the first column is multiplied by the cell in the last row of the second column and the total is displayed in the cell in the last row of the third column.
