I'm trying to update our companies monthly sales spreadsheet which at the minute needs to be manually updated each month and very often the formulas going out of line and bring through the wrong values.

I want to set the summary sheet which gets dropped into the monthly management pack update by just changing the date in the first cell.

There are three sheets which feed into the summary sheet, the actuals, the budget & last years. On the summary sheet the customers are listed down column A and across the top it lists current month sales v budget & prior year.

The three feeder sheets contain a long list of customers which next to each one it's the summary customers is listed. Along the top is each month.

Now I want to type the month in the summary sheet and do a hlookup along the top row of the feeder sheets then once found look down the customer list and bring back the sales figure for that customer for the relevant month. Each customer could be listed more than once so I'd need a sumif.

Now I don't think I can link these two formula's together & I think I may have to use a sumproduct but I really don't understand the arguments for a sumproduct so any help would be really appreciated.

I tried a pivot table but gave up, am I right in thinking a pivot table can only draw information of one sheet?
