Excel VB Sripting

Hello people, I have an excel Spreadsheet that has a sheet in an excel workbook named Summary and multiple other sheets (the sheet names can be named different).  what i am looking to accomplish is combing the cells in C9:H44 into the summary sheet.  All the sheets have the same information in them but for instantance sheet 1 would have A's in the above cells Sheet two would have B's and so on.  On the summary sheet it would basically combine the cells using the & function and would be displayed as AB.  I have some sample code that completes this but it only works if the sheets are named what they are in the code. Can i set this up as a varible and have it go through all the sheets.  

thanks in advance.

    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ""
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
    Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("C9:C45"), Type:=xlFillDefault
    Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("C9:H45"), Type:=xlFillDefault
    ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 2
    ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 1
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-9

Hi, kkenison.

Please see attached. The code is...
Option Explicit

Const xRANGE = "C9:H44"

Sub Summarise_Sheets()
Dim i          As Long
Dim j          As Long
Dim xArray_Wrk As Variant
Dim xArray_Out As Variant
Dim xSheet     As Worksheet

xArray_Out = Sheets("Summary").Range(xRANGE)

For Each xSheet In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
    If xSheet.Name <> "Summary" Then
        xArray_Wrk = xSheet.Range(xRANGE)
        For i = 1 To UBound(xArray_Wrk, 1)
            For j = 1 To UBound(xArray_Wrk, 2)
                If xArray_Wrk(i, j) <> "" Then xArray_Out(i, j) = xArray_Out(i, j) & xArray_Wrk(i, j)
    End If

Sheets("Summary").Range(xRANGE) = xArray_Out

End Sub

Open in new window

Edit:Range converted to a constant to make it easier to change.
