My first worksheet is labeled Spirs 1 and the folowing sheets are labeled A CO, B CO, C CO, D CO, and HHC, all in the same workbook. I want to add the data from B2 on the worksheets and display the results in Spirs 1, B2. I have done all I know and every time I think I have it right it opens up a window looking for another spreadsheet to update the values in A CO, B CO, C CO, D CO, and HHC, I am not trying to update the values in another spreadsheet, just wanting to add the data from several worksheets and show the total in the first worksheet (Spirs 1). I also want to add B3 and B4 and then C2, C3, C4, then D, then E the same way. Please help.

maybe something like,

which is assuming "HHC" is the last sheet in the work book

=SUM('Spirs 1:HHC'!B2)

IMO its a better practice to add a 'start' and 'end' sheet to the workbook

=SUM(start:end!B2) every thing in between in cell B2 would get summed.

would would then do the same for the other cells you want to sum.

you might also might want to have a look at the consolidation feature.

Thank you, it worked. The main problem was that I had imported the data from a web program and I was still working with the sheet as a web page, once I saved it as a workbook, the formula worked. Yes, I am a "user", not very excel savy! Talk about feeling stupid! LOL
