I want to title a chart with "totals for 2015" where the year can be taken from a cell on another sheet in the book.

Is there a way to do this?
 

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

Sure,

You can use ="Totals for "&Sheet1!A1

Then select the chart title, go to the Formula bar and select the cell with the formula. It's going to end up looking like =Sheet2!A1, and has to have the sheet reference even though it's on the same sheet.

HTH,
