Not sure how to do this but here it goes. At work, they have created one spreadsheet per person on a weekly basis. So for the year, we would have 52 spreadsheets. On each of the worksheets the information is the same. To make it easy, say A1 contains the same information on all worksheets, A2 the same and A3 shows the sum. They would like to have a main page that totals all the information from all the subpages. I know that an Access database is the correct way to go, but the information has already been implemented now for 30 of them. How would I in excel create a formula that totals A1 on each of the spreadsheet and puts it on a mainpage. I could go to each page, add it into the formula, then the next, and so on, but it would be quite tedious and difficult to track. Is there an easier way to go? I hope this makes sense.

You can use a formula like this to sum every sheet including the two referenced and all those in between:

=SUM('Week 1:Week 52'!A1)
