    Yes! For business users (Accountants) we often like to have a sum of a column above the header of a table that's not really a table and the last row of the data can change from month to month. Using an absolute reference doesn't work because if rows below are deleted then the absolute range adjusts.

    One can use an indirect range reference =SUM(INDIRECT("P3:P1048576",TRUE)) but this cannot be copied to another column without changing the "P" in the range string. One can also use a SUBSTITUTE to get the column letter to create the range string, but that is unwieldy.

    Ideally, there would be a SUMCOL function with a starting reference cell that always assumes down to the last row of that column.
