Total multiple worksheets

Is it Possible to total cells from multiple worksheets?

Yes, it's possible. I'd suggest to select each range in turn and give them meaningful names and use those names e.g. in a SUM formula.

Suppose you want to total the numbers in A1:A5 on Sheet1 and the ones in C4: D5 on Sheet2. Select A1:A5 and name it (say RangeA) via the Name Box or the option Insert|Name|Define. Name C4:D5, say RangeB, following the same recept. The following will work:

Yep, try =SUM(Sheet2!A1,Sheet3!A1,Sheet4!A1)
Or =SUM(Sheet2!A:A,Sheet3!A:A,Sheet4!A:A)

And if you're summing up the same cell (e.g., A5) from multiple worksheets (e.g., in an Annual worksheet for worksheets named jan, feb, ... dec), you could use sum(jan:dec!A5)
