Hi

if the values are all in the same cell then something along the lines of
=sum(Sheet2:Sheet5!A1)
where you want to add cell A1 from sheet2, sheet3, sheet4 and sheet5

or
=Sheet2!A1+Sheet3!B1
where you want to add just these two cells

BTW you don't need to type very - just
click in the cell where you want the answer and type a
=
then click on the first sheet that you want to add and click on the relevant
cell it will appear in the formula, then type a
+
then click on the sheet tab of the next sheet you want to include and click
on the relevant cell - continue until all included then press ENTER

Hope this helps
Cheers

Doesn't work, maybe because I have renamed all the worksheets. I am trying
to set up an inventory, each sheets has a different product, last sheet I am
trying to set up as the summary of all ??

Just subsitute your sheet names for where i've got mine - if your sheet
names have spaces in them you'll need to enclose them in single quotes

e.g.
=SUM('Product 1':'Product 101'!A1)

Still not working, gives me a name error. Shows this:
=sum('clarion 5023':'clairion 5028'!J3)
BUT when I press enter, #NAME?

Is there a way to just copy the total from each worksheet (so that it
changes automatically, with inventory) and then just sum the summary page ?

The sheet tabs *must* be *physically* in between the first and last sheet as
entered in the formula, as displayed in the workbook scroll bar.

See if this old post better describes it:

Don't know what time it is in Australia where Julie is, perhaps it's nap
time down there.

But, your formula has a couple of *extra* apostrophes in it.

Try this:

=sum('clarion 5023:clairion 5028'!J3)

And if this doesn't return the correct answer, you could check out the link
I posted in my last message that describes *where* the sheets must reside
within the workbook itself, in relation to the actual formula.

okay RD so it's nearly 2am ...but that's not the reason for the extra '' in
my formula - it is the fact that i NEVER put spaces in my sheet names (or
try never to anyway) so i'm not used to writing formulas with them in - and
of course, after sending the reply i though i better go test it
