I have several tabs that break out specific data for different locations. </SPAN>

I am creating another tab summarize the data. What I am wanting to know is it more efficient to subtotal the data on each location tab and then total the sub totals on the summary tab or is it better to total everything directly summary tab??</SPAN>

Thanks!</SPAN>

I couldn't say for sure, but generally the less number of calculations being done the better. So I'd leave out the subtotal.
