I have a range of data from another workbook that I would like to collect.

From this workbook [2006] I have labeled name ranges to use for the data

Is it possible to sum data from an external workbook using labeled ranges and if so here is my attempt:

=SUM('[2006 License Fees.xls]PLATFORM'!KGBT Aug-06)

If I desire info based on column B, which refers to KGBT for the range

Aug-06 to Dec-06, thus AB:AF

Do I need to include column B:AF for labeled name range and the row?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks,

Square and cube roots
The =SQRT(25) is a square root. For a cube root, use =125^(1/3). For a fourth root, use =625^(1/4).

Sorry the earlier post makes very little sense, what was I smoking!

I need data that is from as follows:

row42 column B = KGBT

row42 column AB:AF = Aug06-Dec06

I would like to sum(KGBT Aug06-Dec06) using labeled name ranges

this also refers to an external work book,

If I label name ranges B:B and AB:AF in the workbook refered to [2006 'License Fees.xls]PLATFORM'!

Is it possible to sum this argument using name ranges, my attempt was thus, but it does not work

=SUM('[2006 License Fees.xls]PLATFORM'!KGBT Aug-06)

Any advice would be great
