Formula sheet increment

New Contributor

I have a sheet that takes the total sum from other sheets cell U48. My current formula is =‘001’!U$48.  I have to create a totaling sheet that will reference U48 from sheet 001-100. How do I create a formula where the sheet number is dynamic and will increment up when I drag my formula down.

In special cases you can use 3d references which basically allow you to sum across sheets:
=SUM('001:100'!U$48)
If you really need to pull in each individual sheet total then you can use INDIRECT():
=INDIRECT("00"&ROW(A1)&"!U$48")
and then drag down

@mtarler that worked! Thank you. Saved me a ton of time
