I have a payroll workbook that I'm working on.  Every two weeks I add another worksheet by copying the template.  Is there a way that my total worksheet could be continually updated to reflect the new worksheet, preferably without using a vba.
Thanks

I don't think so as your adding sheets it would be difficult or I don't see how without VBA.
If you change your mind and accept VBA then pls provide a sample workbook and it would be no sweat to give you a solution.

If your new sheets always follow a particular date format, then you could construct a summary sheet that uses calculated references to construct the information you need, using IFERROR statements to hide/recast values that don't exist yet. This is possible using only Excel formulas without VBA.

See attached for a simple example that uses a constructed date format to anticipate what the next two sheets will be called and automatically pull the values once they exist in the file. A total field at the top calculates the total for all sheets. Any future dates appear as zero by default.

Formulas:
To construct a month/day sheet name from a date:
=TEXT(A4,"mmm")&DAY(A4)
To construct an indirect sheet reference (note the exclamation point concatenated after the sheet name and before the cell reference):
=INDIRECT(B4&"!B2:B100")
