# updating Excel workbook

×

#### ×™×”×•× ×ª×Ÿ ×˜×‘×ª

Hi,

I am using an Excel workbook with 10 worksheets.
Every worksheet has lists of different names and different amounts.
The tenth worksheet needs to have in it the updated summation of all nine
other worksheets.
In other words the tenth worksheet will have the sum of all the others at
any given time.
The problem: the first nine worksheetsare being updated on a daily basis.
Is there a way to update the tenth worksheet automatically as per the nine
other worksheets?
Thank you.

If all sheets have the same structure and so does the summary sheet,
you can use in summary A2 a formula like

=SUM(Sheet1:Sheet9!A2)

Assuming that the detail sheets are placed sequentially in order.

1. A2 is a cell reference.

2. You put the equation in your summary sheet. In the example given, you
put the equation in cell A2 in that sheet, and it will add up the values
suit your data, and copy the equation to other cells as required.

My mistake.
I ment rows as thy are, not numbers.
i.e.: if for example, in sheet1 we have 3 rows & in sheet2 we have 5 rows,
than, in sheet3 we got 8 rows.
