I use OOo 2.1 calc for doing my home accounts and when I try to total a column it only adds up the first three columns, how can I get it to add all the colums as I highlight them.

Maybe not all columns are of the same type? Did you check that?

All the columns are in the same row and contain similar data, I never had this problem with version 2.

Yes, but are all the columns really of the same type, e.g. "Currency" or "Number" ? If it regards the contents to be text strings then I imagine any math operations will fail.

I use GNUCash for my home accounting. It is a double entry accounting system.
I love it.
I can import files from the bank or other accounting apps.

It doesn't fix your problem but I just like spreading the word.
