I have set up a Sumifs formula with an indirect and it works perfectly when my sheet names and other entries have no spaces. However I want to test it with entries where worksheets have spaces in their names and there is something I am missing in the delightful configuration of apostrophes etc. Need another set of eyes on it. This is the formula that works :=SUMIFS(INDIRECT(C$3&"!B:B"), INDIRECT(C$3&"!A:A"),$A4) 

This is the formula that doesn't work...SUMIFS(INDIRECT("'"&B$3&" '!"&B:B), INDIRECT("'"&B$3&"'!"&A:A),$A4)
