Mathcad - Text in table cells

I wanted to create a table with text and numbers and then be able to sum the numbers.  Such as:

    Item          Wt

   Motor       100

   Bearing      20

   Mount       220

 

TotalWeight:= Sum Wt

 

But it is complaining that "Motor" etc. are undefined variables.

I could created just a single column table to hold the weights and then align it against a series of text boxes but that does not feel right.

 

Thanks for your help,

   Robin

It's best if you attach your file and/or include a snapshot.

You likely just need to put Motor, Bearing, & Mount in quotes:

    Item          Wt

   "Motor"       100

   "Bearing"      20

   "Mount"       220
