Excel Conditional Referencing Problem

New Contributor

Hi,

 

I have what is essentially a daily time sheet for employee's. Each sheet is for a day of the week. In one row across the top, I have a series of codes in the format of x.xx.xx. In a column on the Y axis, I have a list of employee names. Essentially, each employee could have hours in any number of codes on the same day. 

 

What I am trying to do is sum all of the hours worked for each individual code throughout the week in a different sheet.

 

The problem is that these codes and their locations in that top row change on a weekly basis. Essentially, I need something that can test each cell in that row to see what the code is, and then sum all of the hours underneath it.

 

I have attached a sample file below. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

do you need to distinguish between RT, OT and DT, or do you just want to lump these together on the Total Hours sheet?

Just trying to lump it all together as a total hours worked for that specific code

In B2 on the Total Hours sheet:

 

=IFERROR(SUM(OFFSET(Monday!$E$27:$AB$27,0,MATCH(A2,Monday!$E$5:$AB$5,0)-1,1,3)),0)+IFERROR(SUM(OFFSET(Tuesday!$E$27:$AB$27,0,MATCH(A2,Tuesday!$E$5:$AB$5,0)-1,1,3)),0)+IFERROR(SUM(OFFSET(Wednesday!$E$27:$AB$27,0,MATCH(A2,Wednesday!$E$5:$AB$5,0)-1,1,3)),0)+IFERROR(SUM(OFFSET(Thursday!$E$27:$AB$27,0,MATCH(A2,Thursday!$E$5:$AB$5,0)-1,1,3)),0)+IFERROR(SUM(OFFSET(Friday!$E$27:$AB$27,0,MATCH(A2,Friday!$E$5:$AB$5,0)-1,1,3)),0)+IFERROR(SUM(OFFSET(Saturday!$E$27:$AB$27,0,MATCH(A2,Saturday!$E$5:$AB$5,0)-1,1,3)),0)+IFERROR(SUM(OFFSET(Sunday!$E$27:$AB$27,0,MATCH(A2,Sunday!$E$5:$AB$5,0)-1,1,3)),0)

 

Fill down to B6.

You are a gentleman and a scholar. That worked perfectly. Thanks for your expertise and help.
