Excel trending

I have a 'totals' sheet and to the right individual sheets with stat reports for matches over the past several weeks.
What I'd like to produce is a trend report that takes the 2nd sheet through the last sheet and shows for every statistic, how each stat has improved (or not).
Hoping there's an easier way than the manual method I'm aware of...

You can try and use the TREND function of excel which
Returns values along a linear trend. Fits a straight line (using the method of least squares) to the arrays known_y's and known_x's. Returns the y-values along that line for the array of new_x's that you specify.

Just remember that the TREND function is an array function which means once you input all the variables and references you need to press CTRL+SHIFT+Enter to enter it as an array formula.

I don't believe that's what I was looking for - I tried it but it seemed to only give me a single number.
I ended up titling my totals sheet's column headers with the other sheets exact names and using the
Indirect function to grab the name/value from the corresponding sheet.
I had to manually increment the row portion, unfortunately.  And then I used the Excel charting trend line feature to graphically represent the trend.

Manual solution, rather than the automated one that I wanted, but it works.
