how do I create a formula the will count & add the total result from:
D6 in sheet1 of the trending3a file within the progressive folder on the e-drive
with
D6 in sheet1 of the trending3b file within the progressive folder on the e-drive
to
the bankend file
If the result is 0, then the result is blank
 

Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

"If the result is 0, then the result is blank"

...with long file names like that, i'd just stick the results in a cell & either use another formula for that bit:

=if(a1=0,"",a1)

...or set the tools | options | view - window options - zero values setting.
