### Excel Facts

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

I found a solution, with the use of helper columns

<

Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=R[-1]C"
Selection.NumberFormat = "m/d/yy h:mm;@"

Range("AE5:AE" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).Value = Range("A5:A" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).Value
Range("AE5:AE" & Cells(Rows.Count, 30).End(xlUp).Row).Replace What:="AM", Replacement:=""
Range("AE5:AE" & Cells(Rows.Count, 30).End(xlUp).Row).Replace What:="PM", Replacement:=""

Range("AF5:AF" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-2]+RC[-1]"
Range("AF5:AF" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).Value = Range("AF5:AF" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).Value>

Any ways to make more efficient?
