Excel 2007 Formulas

I am dealing with a very complicated Excel spreadsheet that I did not write, as it is quite a bit over my head.  I would like to set up a table on a worksheet that uses a formula to sum up data along a row, and displays that data at the end, and instantly exports that data to a cell on another sheet.

For example: Dealing with Sheet-A, Sheet-B, and Sheet-C.  The base data is entered on several cells on Sheet-A which sends data to various cells on Sheet-B.  On Sheet-B, which would tally and add information from several other sheets, offering the results to Sheet-C for display.

To sum it up, rather than using a formula to look up information to import into the cell, is it possible to use a formula to take information from one cell and export it to another cell on another worksheet within the spreadsheet?

No, you can't dynamically *move* data from cell to cell with a formula.  

You can use a formula on Sheets B and C to *reference* info from A (and elsewhere), but you say you don't want to do this.  If your data is static in layout (ie a predictable range of cells), formulas are a good way to do this.

If your data is dynamic in size, or you have a gazillion rows and you don't want to do the copynpaste, then you need a macro.

Can you post an example of your sheet?

Unfortunately, due to legal issues, I can not post it.  Much of the content in the sheet is locked and I can not even read.

Basically, I need to be able to keep track of hundreds of different conditions that are or could be in effect, and be able to mark them as on or off to dynamically display the totals that those conditions provide.

I guess a macro may have to do...  Now I have to learn macros because I know almost nothing about how to make them within excel...

Not the answer I was hoping for, but it is what it is.
