Hello Excel Rock Stars

I have a client/buddy that wants to do thirty tabs for thirty different events, all with the same format.

The end will have a 'Totals' tab, where I need to sum cells from all 30 other tabs, e.g. Sum(all a3's except for the Totals tab), Sum(all b4's except for the Totals tab), etc.

Is that possible?

Thanks.

Ok, lets assume the workbook has 31 sheets (tabs) called "Event1" "Event2" .... "Event30" "Event Totals" etc

In cell A3 on sheet "Event Totals" you would type

Sum(Event1:Event30!A3)
