Eg if i want to add to numbers
in sheet 1 i have the value 20 in cell B3
in sheet 2 i have the value 10 in cell B4

thus the formula would be:

=sheet1!B3+sheet2!B4

Sum numbers in a column down until you come to a blank, then start again


Sounds like your issue can be solved readily with a pivot table.
If you give the columns of names a title like "NAME" and the number columns a name like "VALUE". All other columns should contain a unique name.

Then select the entire table, including the labels at the top ensuring that the range extends entirely over the column you need to sum the values of.

In Excel 2013, choose the INSERT menu and select the PIVOT TABLE command.
Insert the Pivot table into a new worksheet.
A new sheet will open with a strange-looking control panel on the right of the window.
Make sure that the box for NAME and VALUE (only) are checked

You will notice that Excel assumes that you want the SUM of the values for each NAME summed. The results are in the leftmost area of the worksheet.

If this works for you, please vote my answer as "helpful".

How to find no. of rows and columns in Worksheet.


Hello everybody, this would be my first tip on FixYa.com. Number of people might not be aware how many rows and columns are there in Microsoft Worksheet.
This is how you can find out.
1. Select A1 cell in the worksheet
2. Now press Ctrl + down arrow from your keyboard, that will take you to the bottom of the row. You can find the number on the left side.
3. Again select A1 cell in the worksheet and press Ctrl + left arrow from your keyboard, that will take you to the last column of the worksheet. Now to number, just type "=column() " , without quotations, that will give you the number of the column.
Microsoft Worksheet columns is number from A to Z, again from AA to AZ, again from BA to BZ and so on till it reached IV in Excell 2003 and earlier version.
Microsoft Excel 2003 and old version has 16,777,216 cells per worksheet (65,536 rows * 256 columns).
Excel 2007 has 17,179,869,184 cells per worksheet (1,048,576 rows * 16,384 columns).

What is a workbook?


A workbook is a spreadsheet file. By default, each workbook in Excel contains three pages or worksheet

The term spreadsheet is often used to refer to a workbook, when in actual fact, spreadsheet refers to the computer program, such as Excel.

So, strictly speaking, when you open the Excel spreadsheet program it loads an empty workbook file consisting of three blank worksheets for you to use.

Count how many times a value appears in a column, based on anothe


Go to the cell you want this total in.
Type this formula:
=SUM(IF(Sheet2!C1:C10="EME",IF(Sheet2!N1:N10=1,1,0)))
make sure you end the formula with CTRL - SHIFT - ENTER which makes it an array formula. If you forget, go back to the cell with this formula and press F2 (to edit the cell) and press CTRL - SHIFT - ENTER to convert it to an array formula (Excel will show a little {...} around the formula).

You can refer to cells that are on other worksheets by perpending the name of the worksheet followed by an exclamation point (!) to the cell reference. In the following example, the AVERAGE worksheet function calculates the average value for the range C1:C10 on the worksheet named Marketing in the same workbook.

default.aspx?assetid=za010939481033 Refers to the worksheet named Marketing default.aspx?assetid=za010939491033 Refers to the range of cells between C1 and C10, inclusively
  1. Click the cell in which you want to enter the formula.
  2. In the formula bar (formula bar: A bar at the top of the Excel window that you use to enter or edit values or formulas in cells or charts. Displays the constant value or formula stored in the active cell.) default.aspx?assetid=za060515351033, type = (equal sign).
  3. Click the tab for the worksheet to be referenced.
  4. Select the cell or range of cells to be referenced.

Consolidate few sheets under 1 excel


It is actually very simple on the new worksheet in the first row just type:
in cell - A1: =[Book1]Sheet1!A1
in cell - B1: =[Book1]Sheet1!B1
in cell - C1: =[Book1]Sheet1!C1
etc.

Where Book1 is the worksheet(filename) and Sheet1 is the sheet with the data, just drag down the results with the magic square and continue to do so on all of your data worksheets.

Let me know if you need more help

and Please use our community and not emails

Good luck

Dear jois you can make a link from one sheet to other sheet by making a hyperlink. When you will click one cell in first sheet it would shift the sheet in the cell you will fix it.

You can follow this process:

  1. Select a cell that contains the external formula
  2. Highlight the File path and sheet name in the Formula bar, eg; 'L:\Daves\[Book2.xls]Sheet1'!
  3. Push Ctrl+C then push Enter.
  4. Select the range of cells you wish to change the reference in and go to Edit>Replace.
  5. Select in the Find what box and hold down the Backspace to ensure you do not have a space.
  6. Push Ctrl+V.
  7. Do the same in the Replace with box and then edit the file path to the new one needed.
  8. Click Replace All
if that has helped you please press 'fixya'
