I have seen some posts where they say, use sum(First tab:Last tab!D28) to
sum multiple tabs. However, it's not working for me. It gives #name? error everytime. I have tried different variations but doesn't work.

Do I have to Shift+enter or something like that to get it right?

Please help.

Thanks in advance!

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Are the worksheets acatually called First tab and Last tab, with the space?

If they are you should enclose the sheet names in single quotes ' or rename them without spaces.

Hi,

Click the sum button.

Click the cell to sum in the first tag, then hold down shift and click on the last tag. This should make your formula right.
