# How to sum groups of contiguous values automatically?

Note: The number of values in the group can be anything between 1 and 1000. The list of values is preceded by the keyword "start"
Is there a formula to calculate the total?
Example of data:
 start 1 2 1 1 2 3 1 2 Total=?

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

correction: (actually the data has more than one group)
 start 1 2 1 1 2 3 1 2 Total=? start 1 2 11 1 2 Total=? start 1 2 1 Total=?

<colgroup><col width="64" style="width:48pt"> </colgroup><tbody>
