I have a workbook with a tab for each month. I want to make a summary sheet that will display the totals for each month. For example, I want cell A60 from each month sheets to display on the summary tab. Is there a quick way to do this? If I put in the summary cell A2 ='Sep 2015'!A60, how can I drag this to the next have cell A3 be ='Oct 2015'!A60? Do i have to manually type or is there a drop a drag shortcut?

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

You could create a list of your sheets, then use INDIRECT:

Book2
ABC
1Sheet1
25Sheet2
36Sheet3
47
5
Sheet9
Cell Formulas
RangeFormula
A2:A4A2=INDIRECT("'"&C1&"'!A60")
