Word. Formula result

P: 1
I have a real problem that does't let me to work very fast in Word.
My boss gives me tasks that look like this:
I have a table (say 3 columns and a lot of rows - near 50)

Col 1 ..............Col 2 ...........................Col 3

"Cost" .........(10 + 20*3.5)*2*3*4 ........1920

So my task is to calculate the result of actions in Col 2 and to post it in
Col 3.

I do it with calculator and it is very slowly.
* Col 2 shouldn't show "="
* Col 3 should shou the only result
* Use of menu Table/Formula is very complecated because I have too
much rows.
The ideal variant is to make such a procedures:
- put cursor in the Col 2
- click a buttom or item in context menu or smth else
- and finaly get a result of calculations in Col 3

But how to do so?

I think it to be a hard task. But I would be greatefull for those who can help me.
Thank You

i think this could help you to do what you're trying to do:

otherwise i'd recommend doing the reports in excel instead, and then paste it into word if needed...
