I have a worksheet filled with formulas. All of them work fine, except for any formula I type into cell F1. For whatever reason, in that cell this text:

Code:
=VALUE('Raw Infopath Data (BAT)'!F3)

comes out as "=VALUE('Raw Infopath Data (BAT)'!F3)" instead of the actualy result of the formula. I have tried simple formulas as well, like:

Code:
=A2

but it still has the same error. Anyone know what the issue might be? Thanks!

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

Hello

Format the cells in that column as General (for instance) and then you can use formulas instead of Text.

Ah, that worked. Didn't think of that because I had never changed the format to general..

Thanks for the help!
