You can simply to click the icon next to the formula box to bring out the formula dialog box. In the formulas dialog box, you can choose a function by clicking an icon.
Step 1: Select the cell E2. Step 2: Click the button next to the formula box. Step 3: Choose the “SUM” in the function dialog box. Step 4: Select the cells to be summed up, e.g. (B2:D2), and then press the enter.
