I'm crunching some serious numbers here. I'm doing sales tax so it's 500 entries of nothing but 10.99+56.45+67+151.10+56.54+89.97... You get the picture.

Anyway, on a lucky day, I'll get halfway threw the invoices before I mess up but other times I have butter fingers and mess up every 50 pages or so. At this point, I WISH I could bust a command+z and go back to the last entry, but I can't cause stupit iCalculator or whatever won't let me.

In the real world they use those things with the paper rolls, so they can see exactly what they added up and if they made an error. Is there any visual app that simulates one of those?


BTW, I met this girl. Her name's Inga and she's from Sweden and she fell in love with her.

+1 to this suggestion just type in all the values and then sum the column.

How do you calculate the tables?
