ADDRESS(1,24) returns $X$1
ADDRESS(14, 24) returns $X$24

INDIRECT("$X$1:$X$24")
returns a reference to the range X1:X24 and SUM then adds it up. You can use the Evaluate Formula button on the formulas tab to see the steps. ;)

INDIRECT function turns a "String" value to "Range Reference".
You can use both A1 and R1C1 references together with help of this function.
ADDRESS function produces address of a range as "String", from parameters you give.

Your formula always sums X1:X14 (X is 24th column) in same sheet with formula.
