I'm setting up an expense report that has JAN as sheet 1 all the way through DEC as sheet 12. Sheet 13 is Yearly Total. If I have the value 1 in (JAN:B10) and the same value in the same cell through DEC, how do I set up a formula to total all of the values in B10 from JAN through DEC which is placed in cell B10 on the sheet titled Yearly Total?

So, if the sheets JAN to DEC are next to each other, with no other intervening sheets, use: =SUM(JAN.B10:DEC.B10) If you have one or more sheets between (say) the JUL and AUG sheets, use: =SUM(JAN.B10:JUL.B10;AUG.B10:DEC.B10) Similarly =SUM(Jan.A1:Jun.C3) will sum the range of cells between (and including) A1 to C3 on sheets Jan to Jun HTH._________________Dale To err is human, but to destroy your slippers in the process takes a real son of a bitch: Me!
