not sure what you mean... can you give example of "current formula" and what you need?

IFERROR(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&TEXT($D$21,"dd-mmm-yyyy")&"'!$A$3:$A$14"),H$3,INDEX(INDIRECT("'"&TEXT($D$21,"dd-mmm-yyyy")&"'!$A$3:$Q$14"),,MATCH($D22,INDIRECT("'"&TEXT($D$5,"dd-mmm-yyyy")&"'!$A$3:$Q$3"),0))),0)

This formula is in H22 and I want to always one row up and 3 rows left.  in this instance I would return D1

Oh you changed it to D21....

Try:

=IFERROR(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&TEXT(OFFSET(H22,-1,-4),"dd-mmm-yyyy")&"'!$A$3:$A$14"),H$3,INDEX(INDIRECT("'"&TEXT(OFFSET(H22,-1,-4),"dd-mmm-yyyy")&"'!$A$3:$Q$14"),,MATCH($D22,INDIRECT("'"&TEXT($D$5,"dd-mmm-yyyy")&"'!$A$3:$Q$3"),0))),0)

You may have to change the D22 and/or D5 similarly if necessary

also note D21 is 4 columns over....
