In this article we will learn how to add cells from different sheets in Microsoft Excel.
Consider a scenario while working on the reports you want a formula that will give you the total from the same cell address in different sheets.
We will use SUM function to retrieve the output.
Sum: Adds all the numbers in a range of cells.
There can be maximum 255 arguments. Refer below shown screenshot:
Let us take an example to add totals from different sheets:
We have three sheets named as Jan, Feb & Mar.
- In cell A1, a number is stored in all the sheets & we want to take a sum.
- Let us enter number 10 in cell A1 in all the sheets to get the output as 30.
- We can put the formula in any cell in any sheet.
- Type =SUM in any cell in any of the sheet in the workbook.
- Select the tab for the first sheet like Jan.
- Hold the shift key and then select the tab for the last sheet, Mar.
- Click on the specific cell i.e. cell A1 for which you want to take a sum.
- The formula would be =SUM(Jan:Mar!A1)
- Then press Enter. We will get the total from cells in different sheets.
