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

Welcome to the Board!

If it always starts with the 4th space, you could use:
Excel Formula:
=MID(A1,4,LEN(A1))

If you want something a little more dynamic that takes everything after the first blank space, you can use:
Excel Formula:
=MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1)+1,LEN(A1))
