Create a list of all the tabnames in your workbook somewhere, select that list and name it by typing a name in the NameBox just to the left, for example SheetNames

Then enter a formula like:

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&SheetNames&"'!J:J"),"Civilian",INDIRECT("'"&SheetNames&"'!M:M")))

I thought you were going across multiple sheets.... I didn't pick up that it was one sheet...

if it's one sheet named all deals, then

=SUMIF('all deals'!J:J, "Civilian",'all deals'!M:M)
