Summing a column in Word 2003 when there is a blank cell

In Word 2003 I have a table that has numbers in one of the columns. In order to make the table more readable, I have formatted it where there are some blank rows. I want to add up the numbers in one of the columns, but when I go to the last cell in the number column and do the Table Formula and choose =sum(above) it will only include the numbers above the total cell until it encounters a blank cell and will not include any of the cells above the blank cell in the total. Is there some way to sum the entire column without being effected by the blank cells?

It is a bit more fiddly to use bookmarks, because making sure that they precisely contain the digits can be difficult. The advantage is that numbers from outside the table can be included.

{=SUM (A1,A2,bmk1)}
