You can't refer to multiple worksheets/ranges like this.

501105'!\$C\$2:\$C\$200","30163-001AE'!\$C\$2:\$C\$200","30382-001AB'!\$C\$2:\$C\$200

What are you trying to calculate with the formula.

Oops, my mistake.

Try this, you were missing a single quote in front of the sheet names.

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&workorders&"'!\$C\$2:\$C\$200"),A16,INDIRECT("'"&workorders&"'!\$D\$2:\$D\$200")))
