Summation of rows that have been inserted via Form

I would like to have the sum formula already in my sheet so that as voting takes place it automatically sums the total and displays in a report. I have everything set up. However when the data is inserted from the form (top or bottom) it places it above or below my formula. Is there a work around for this? Thank you

    Hi Stein,

    It should still work if you sum the whole column.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too,

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    I have tried these formulas

    SUM(range_start:range_end) so I put in.......

    =SUM(2020 HMO Surescripts_start:2020 HMO Surescripts_end)

    I have tried

    =SUM(2020 HMO Surescripts:2020 HMO Surescripts)

    If I put the whole range, when the new row is added from the form, it adds it outside the range (no matter how I add it to the top or the bottom).
