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?

What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

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,
