Sum column from form submissions

I have users inputting data using a form. The data comes into my sheet at the top. At the bottom of my sheet I have a cell that is summing the numbers in a column called "Sales Amount". Each time a new record is added at the top however the formula summing the "Sales Amount" is not being included.

My formula is =sum(salesamount$1:salesamount20)

If I add a record from a form the formula is changing to =sum(salesamount$2:salesamount21

What formula should I use so that the 1st record is included into the calculation at the bottom each time a new form is submitted?

    =sum(salesamount:salesamount) should do the trick, to check every amount in the column. 

    You just have to make sure your formula is not in the same column or you will get a circular reference error.
