Sum Based on Sheet Name
In an earlier indirect to Sum Data article I showed how to sum Excel data in another sheet based on the sheet name in a cell. The following example is a little more dynamic where I will sum data based on the sheet name but without the quotation marks inside the Indirect formula. This provides a certain level of flexibility. In the attached file I have 4 sheets Oil, Gas, Minerals and Acid. The data on each sheet is laid out like this;
