Table formula sum only shows only pound symbols - but Preview shows value

I have several tables that previously showed the Table Sum value but now after another table with a sum forumla all are now showing just ############.  I've gotten past this by adding a row below and then deleting the row but this is a constant pain that I'd like to find a solution for.

 

Thanks!

Doug

I just added a row below, deleted current row/cell (only a 1 column table), and then recreated the sum formula.  The value text shows up but when I switch to PaperSpace it goes to ############.

I did the same for all tables using the same sum forumla and in Model Space they all look right with their values.  Then I switch to Paper Space and they're  ############.  I did a regen in Model Space throught the Paper Space viewport and no change, just  ############.  I close the drawing and reopen and no improvement.  I close AutoCAD and reopen both AutoCAD and the drawing and still  ############.  Argh!

AutoCAD 2013 was no different.

 

Back in 2010 I was able to bring back the value text by clicking in the cell, right-clicking, selecting Edit Text, cancel that, repeat the process and it comes back.  But then I save the drawing and gone again and back to  ############.

I couldn't not find a solution with the feature as designed and functioning.

 

What I did do was make copies of the tables, repeat the steps in my last reply to get the text values and then I exploded the table (to lines and mtext).
