I found Ashish Mathur's rather brilliant way to generate a list of worksheets. Now I want to use an indirect formula to reference a cell on each of these sheets without having to put the cell reference into the summary sheet. How do I do that? Am attaching what I have.

If you input the Sheet Name in B11 of Summary Sheet (which is currently empty), the following formula will return the Total of that Sheet.
=INDIRECT("'" & B11 & "'!C7")
