Updating formulas in new, copied sheet.

I am currently using two sheets to reflect data for one calendar year. The first sheet contains raw data and the second I use as a stat sheet, compiling data into several useful categories using formulas that refer back to the raw data sheet. I've labeled them "05-06" and "05-06 STATS." With the coming of a new year, I can simply create a copy the 05-06 sheet ("06-07") and wipe out the data (except for returning individuals' names), leaving any formulas, and start over. The second sheet, however, doesn't work so easily in that all formulas still refer back to "05-06." There's quite a collection of cells on this sheet performing varying tasks with many different, albeit similar, formulas. Rewriting each '05-06' as '06-07' will take me a week! There's gotta be an easier way... right?

Select both sheets by clicking the tab of the first sheet and Shift+clicking the tab of the second sheet. Right click the sheet tab, choose Move or Copy Sheet, seect New Book, check Create a copy and click OK. In the new workbook the second sheet will refer to the first.

I had no idea that would jump into formulas. Please forgive the idiotic question! Thanks. :oops:
