Basically, I am doing a budget program in calc and need to be able to have my first sheet contain the difference between sums for 12 different sheets. I was able to do it in Excel but can not figure out how to do this here.

On Sheet1 I would do =Sheet2.A1-Sheet2.A2 to refer to cells A1 and A2 in Sheet2.

Better still, =$Sheet2.$A$1-$Sheet2.$A$2 to ensure that if you copy the formula in the cell to another cell, it will link to the same sheet and cells rather than doing that automatic cell update thing it does.

My knowledge of $ is thanks to Villeroy Laughing

kmbernst,

In Sheet1, I could enter a formula like:
Code:
=SUM(Sheet2.A1:Sheet7.A1)
which adds all the cells A1 for the sheets located between Sheet2 and Sheet7 (inclusive).
