Default reference tabs in a summary sheet as column headers

I am trying to summarize my data on the last sheet of the workbook.... the
sheet names will change frequently..... so what I am trying to do is have a
cell (column header or name) on the summary sheet automatically read the name
on each sheet and use it in the cell for my header-- Then when the sheet
name changes it will automatically update my summary page... Is this possible?
Thanks

Yes. Take a look at INDIRECT in help.

try putting =MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,255)
in a cell on each sheet and then on the summary refer to that cell. You
need to have the sheet saved to update.

Totally awsome and cool....... that was perfect and it also let me name the
sheet and have the name refect in a header on the individual sheets..... just
perfect..
But now for my weakness...... how did it work? what does it say?... you
have already been a great help so if you do not have time to answer, fine,
but my curiosity is killing me.
Many many thanks
