-<field col=B row=0>&SUM('X*')</field>
-<field col=C row=0>'Awarded Points:'</field>
-<field col=D row=0>&SUM('Z*')</field> 
+<field col=A row=0>`Available Points:'</field>
+<field col=B row=0>&SUM(`X*')</field>
+<field col=C row=0>`Awarded Points:'</field>
+<field col=D row=0>&SUM(`Z*')</field>

After it is published with the .spreadsheet extension, it can be imported into a course.
