Excel lookup across entire workbook

Hi,

- Workbook contains 100 sheets (one for each project)
- Each worksheet is named a unique project number (e.g. "123456"). This number is also in cell B5.
- Project "Cost" is in cell 30L in each project worksheet
- In the Summary worksheet, I have one row designated for each project, with project # in column B and vital info (i.e. Cost, Value, etc.) taken from project worksheets listed in subsequent columns.
I need to create a formula in a cell in the summary sheet that does the following:
- Matches project number in column B (different # for each row) with that in cell B5 of project worksheets, then
- Provides the "Cost" value found in cell 30L of the target worksheet

Thanks in advance!

Depending on your requirements, IMO this would be a lot better
implimented using VBA (macro). Optionally, you could have a userform
with a multi-column listbox you can scroll through, that lists all the
info from each sheet.
