Formula Interferes with Form Data
I have a sheet where the first row is full of SUM(row2:row40) functions. This sheet has a Form that submits new data and I want the new data to be included in the totals at the top. I only have 10 rows filled so far, so I expected a form submission to show up on row 11. Instead, it shows up on row 41 so it is excluded from the formulas, despite the above rows being empty. How do I fix the form or the formula?

I agree with @Paul Newcome!
You can also have one formula referencing the entire column in its own column, as long as there are no other formulas that do the same.
For example: =SUM(Column:Column)
Take out the row references after the column name and it will include all new rows into the formula as rows are added. See: Create a Cell or Column Reference in a Formula

I would suggest moving the formulas either to another sheet or into sheet summary fields so that you can reference the entire column.

@Genevieve P. Thanks! I always forget about that circular reference exception.
