Excel Formula to Sum Cell Values from Multiple Worksheets

What is it:

If you have multiple work sheets in your excel workbook and you want to create a Summary page with totals from all the individual work sheets then you can use the below excel formula or excel shortcut to do the same.

For Eg: Your Excel workbook has 5 worksheets like Shope1, Shope2, Shope3……Shope5 and each sheet has Total Sales value in cell A11, now you want to create a Summary sheet with sum total of all shopes cell in A11. The one way of doing the same is go to Summary Sheet and use the below excel formula

=Shope1!A11+Shope2!A11+=Shope3!A11+Shope4!A11+Shope4!A11+Shope5!A11

Why:

The above excel formula is not all practical if you have 100s of sheets in your workbook and with entirely different names. That’s when the below formula is helpful.
