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

On the Forms toolbar, drag a button to where you want it and use this code;

Code:
Sub Button1_Click()
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value = DateSerial(Year(Now), Month(Now) - 1, Day(Now))
End Sub

This puts a date in cell A1

Code:
Sub Macro1()
    ActiveCell.Value = Now()
    Selection.NumberFormat = "mm/dd/yy"
End Sub

Maybe:

Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
  ActiveCell.Value = Date
End Sub

Sorry, mis-read your post, this will put the date in the active cell;

Code:
Sub Button1_Click()
Sheets("Sheet1").Activate
ActiveCell.Value = DateSerial(Year(Now), Month(Now) - 1, Day(Now))
End Sub
