if u set the calculation property of an item then it will be only only used for display, and it will not get inserted into the database (this is my personal experience). what u can better do is use it for display at the front-end and write a back-end trigger which will fire for each row and calculate the total and put it in the total column.....

hope this'll work for u....

cheers
ram
