Help with excel

I have a workbook with 3 sheets. Sheet 1 has 10 cell that will have the same data as sheet 2 and 3. The rest will all be different. I need to just type the data in to sheet 1 for these 10 cell and have them show up in sheet 2 and 3 in the same cell as I type it. Is this possible. hope some one can help me. Thank you.

Mark the cell range in sheet 2 (let's say A1 to A10), then type this into the first cell and press Alt-Enter:
  = sheet1!A1
The sheet name needs to be correct, of course.

Yes, you can enter/edit/format identical cell locations across multiple sheets simultaneously.

1) Using [Ctrl] and/or [Shift] plus click, select every sheet which you wish to edit.   If your workbook has only three sheets and you want to edit them all, right-click on any sheet tab and then click "Select all sheets".
The tabs will appear white.
2) Edit the cells that you want to appear on all sheets.  This includes values, formulas, formatting, row and column height (if desired).
3) When done, left-click on any individual sheet tab.  
That one will be selected only.  All sheets should now have your common values.

The above suggestion is a static solution.  If you want something dynamic, you'll just set up formulas like Qlemo suggested (although I don't see why [Alt]+[Enter] is used; that just creates a line break).

If you want to quickly create these formulas, you could do a combination of the two suggestions:
1) Select the two sheets that should refer to Sheet1 ([Ctrl]+click each sheet tab)
2) In each cell that should have a formula, type:
=Sheet1!celladdress,
where celladdress is the address you want this cell to refer to.
3) Click Sheet1 tab.  

Now, the other two sheets have identical formulas pointing to Sheet1.

Sorry. Alt-Enter should be Ctrl-Enter.
If you mark more than one cell, the entered formula or value will be applied to all those cells. You don't have to type in ten formulas that way.
