## [Orgmode] table formula question

```Hi,

I'm having trouble trying to figure out what I've got wrong here.
Given the table

* wealth management
|--------------------------+--------+-------|
| item                     | amount | total |
|--------------------------+--------+-------|
| paid                     |  50.00 |       |
| baby's new part of shoes | -25.00 |       |
| chip                     |  -2.50 |       |
|--------------------------+--------+-------|
#+TBLFM: \$3='(+ @-1 \$-1)

I would expect to get the results

* wealth management
|--------------------------+--------+-------|
| item                     | amount | total |
|--------------------------+--------+-------|
| paid                     |  50.00 | 50.00 |
| baby's new part of shoes | -25.00 | 25.00 |
| chip                     |  -2.50 | 22.50 |
|--------------------------+--------+-------|
#+TBLFM: \$3='(+ @-1 \$-1)

* wealth management
|--------------------------+--------+--------|
| item                     | amount | total  |
|--------------------------+--------+--------|
| paid                     |  50.00 | #ERROR |
| baby's new part of shoes | -25.00 | #ERROR |
| chip                     |  -2.50 | #ERROR |
|--------------------------+--------+--------|
#+TBLFM: \$3='(+ @-1 \$-1)

I'm sure I'm missing something.  Is a table like this even possible?

Edd
