A philosophy question for all of the financially oriented folks. I am working on a budget which includes 70 separate identically formatted workbooks. I would like to structure the consolidated reporting in a way that:

1) minimizes the chance for a formula bust,
2) minimizes the time spent updating links,
3) allows for some drill-down capabilities for the inevitable management "one-off" requests.

I'm currently contemplating 3-D summation with at least one or two levels of interim summarization to minimize linking time. I'd love any thoughts on consolidation structures, pivot tables, or other ways to look at this problem.
