Welcome to the board!
A formula like this would work:
As long as the total is in the same cell on every sheetCode:=SUM(Sheet2!A1,Sheet4!A1)

Hi Everyone-
I currently have a tax workbook with 50+ tabs (at least one for each State), and in each tab there are tables with many divisions and the amount of taxes paid. I'm trying to figure out a way to do a vlookup and sum in a main summary worksheet such that I can get the total taxes paid by each division (it would need to vlookup each of the 50+ tabs, and then sum). Is there a way to do this? I'm not very good with VBA so please be gentle if that's what is required . . .
Thanks in advance for your help!

If data in your sheets have the same layout you may look at this topics:

Hi Guys-
Thanks for your reply! However, the values I'm summing are now always in the same cell . . . although , they will be in the same column (hence, I was trying to do a vlookup). Is this possible? Thanks!
Something like that sounds like it would be simpler with Named Ranges:
=Sum(Alabama!SalesTax + Alaska!SalesTax + ... + Wyoming!SalesTax)
Other than that (pretty simplistic) idea, can you give an example of what you're trying to accomplish?
Did you try to look at the link I have posted?
VLOOKUP will not give you SUM from the sheets(unless nested(VLOOKUP()+VLOOKUP()....))
To post data:
You can download and install two of the following programs:
HTLMaker
or
Excel Jeanie
or when using Internet Explorer just put borders around your data in Excel and copy those cells into your post.

Thanks Guys . . . BlueHornet, I thought about doing it that way, but I wanted to avoid having to manually sum cells in 50 worksheets . . . also, if I change the order of one then I will have to redo the entire formula.
I tried downloading those two programs but I think the firewall here at work is preventing me from downloading them. But lets say I have a simple worksheet where
Sheet1 I have a table like this:
Manager A $900
Manager B $600
Manager C $500
In Sheet 2 I have another table like this:
Manager C $200
Manager D $500
Manager A $100
In Sheet 3 I have:
Manager C $200
Manager A $5
Manager D $70
Can I now create a summary sheet that will do a vlookup to each of the managers in each sheet and sum their total amounts?
I have created a sheet with 4 tabs. first Tab is "Summary" and the other three are "sheet1""sheet2""sheet3" In these sheets i have Manager in column A and $ in Column B. The Summary sheet is exactly the same and i have entered the following formula to calculate the managers totals over the 3 sheets.
=SUMIF(Sheet1!A:A,Summary!A1,Sheet1!B:B)+SUMIF(Sheet2!A:A,Summary!A1,Sheet2!B:B)+SUMIF(Sheet3!A:A,Summary!A1,Sheet3!B:B)
Thanks
Jamie
