I have an Excel workbook with three sheets.  SHEET 1 keeps track of each day and the hours for a few employees on that day (each day of the year has a column) for a particular project manager...


               9/1/2013    9/2/2013  9/3/2013

tommy     8                   6                 7
billy         6.5                8                  8
james      5                    4                 4

...and another sheet (SHEET 2) will have the same employees, but they might use them on different days.

               9/1/2013    9/2/2013  9/3/2013

tommy     2                   3                 8
billy         4                  4                 4
james      8                   4.5               2

I have another sheet (TOTALS) that looks the same, but I want the hours to total all hours for that employee for that day for both SHEET 1 and SHEET 2.  So the TOTALS spreadsheet would list all employees and their totals from other sheets.  So TOTALS would check SHEET 1 and SHEET 2 for Tommy and put 9 hours on 9/2/2013.
