Summing The Same Cell Across Multiple Sheets

Often we have workbooks where all of the sheets have an identical layout, for example, monthly reports.

Whenever you want to sum the same cell from multiple sheets here are the steps you need to take.

In the example below, we are going to put a SUM formula in cell C4 of the Summary sheet that will give total of cell D7 from the sheets Jan, Feb and Mar.

1) First, select the cell where you want to put the total;

2) On the Home tab, click the AutoSum command (or use the keyboard shortcut ALT+=);

3) Next, click the tab of the first worksheet you want to sum;

4) Hold down the SHIFT key and click the last sheet tab. All of the sheets in between will be selected. (If you want to sum only specific sheets, instead of the SHIFT key, hold down the CTRL key and click each sheet tab you want to include in your SUM formula);

5) Now, select the cell that you want to sum. You need to do this only on one sheet;

6) Finally, press Enter.

The values from that one cell on all the selected sheets will be summed.
