I am in no way, shape or form an Excel expert, so I will probably ask more questions than I would ever be able to answer. Sorry if that's annoying!
Here's the first. I have a work book with multiple tabs. I'd like to take information from a cell on the previous tab and add it to information on the next tab so that there's a total from the two tabs. And then on the 3rd tab I'd like to take a number from a cell and add it to the total from tab #2, so that on each tab I get a running total. I tried writing the formula as =SUM(sheet5!O43,sheet6!O34), but I get an error message that says that there's an invalid cell reference. Is this because my tabs have different names? I mean, they're actually named things like 2019 Jan Paid, not sheet5.
Thanks for trying to help with this. The formula now reads =SUM('[2018DecPaid]2018 Dec Paid'!O37+,'[2019JanPaid]2019 Jan Paid'!O34+,'[2019FebPaid]2019 Feb Paid'!O34) but it is not picking up the data from the second sheet or the 3rd sheet and adding them in to create the running total. Any more ideas?
