    When in an Excel workbook I have 5 pages. The pages 2 - 5 are for different sections of the US (ie. North, South, East, West). On each page (ie page 2 -- North) I have 4 quarters of entries for 4 stores. (i.e. page 3 -- South) I have 4 quarters of entries for 4 more different stores. Same with pages 4 (East) and pages 5 (West). I want the total of pages 2-5 to refer back to page 1 where it will give me a total of each page. Could you tell me what references would I use to accomplish this?

    Any information or tutorial would be gratefully appreciated.

    I'm not sure if this exactly what your after, but if you wanted to, say, sum E1 on all your pages for cell E1,

    =SUM(North:west!E1)

    would accomplish this.

    Excel is very friendly in letting you point to what you want to include in formula, so play around with clicking on cells you would like to include in a formula followed by commas (if you want to add more) or enter (to finish)

    in the cell you want the sum to appear, type =SUM( then go to the first sheet (ie. north) and select all the data to be included. type ) and press enter. do the same for all sheets. this will work if the data is arranged in single or multiple rows/columns. if you need to select multiple ranges of cells (ie. they aren't in adjacent rows or columns), select the first range then hold down the ctrl key to select subsequent ranges.
