Hello, I've used the =SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&C2:C4&"'!A2:A6"),E2)) successfully to total criteria for sheetlists by month for 2023. I want to continue on the same workbook for 2024 and make new sheetlists by month. When i try the above formula with 2024 sheetlists, I get an REF error that i cant figure out how to resolve. Is there any way to resolve the error or do i have to start a new workbook?

Ik krijg alleen maar foutmeldingen na het kopieren-plakken van het voorbeeld en lezen van de tutorial. Ook na cellen veranderen en dergelijke.

Hoe kan ik de getallen in cellen over meerdere sheets/tabbladen bij elkaar optellen?

Hi, Leek,
to sum values from multiple worksheets, please apply htis formula: =SUM(Sheet1!B5,Sheet2!B5,Sheet3!B5…)

Notes:
1. In this formula, Sheet1!B5, Sheet2!B5, Sheet3!B5 are the sheet name and cell value that you wan tto sum, if there are more sheets, you just add them into the formula as you need.
2. If the source worksheet name contains a space or special character, it must be wrapped in single quotes. For example: 'New York'!B5

Thank you. Even though is very long formula, the one that worked the easiest for me was COUNTIF + COUNTIF

This doesn't work when the sheet name has dashes in them. Anything I can do about it?

This was extremely helpful. the below formula is what i use to track all my employees Vacation,Sick,Personal,LOA days. I have tabs for every month of the year and use this to track how many days they have used. All i do is change the "V" to a "S" or "P". Formula works perfect! thanks for the info....

=COUNTIF(January!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(February!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(March!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(April!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(May!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(June!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(July!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(August!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(September!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(October!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(November!B16:AF16,"V")+COUNTIF(December!B16:AF16,"V")

Hi. Using this formula:
=SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&C2:C4&"'!A2:A6"),E2))

I get a Ref error if Column C has more than 9 rows. In other words, INDIRECT("'"&C2:C9&"'!A2:A6"),E2)), is OK but INDIRECT("'"&C2:C10&"'!A2:A6"),E2)) is not.
How do I avoid this error?

How would I write the formula above (=SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&C2:C4&"'!A2:A6"),E2))) if I had to use the COUNTIFS function? Right now I have to see if certain cells have met 2 to 3 criteria (across multiple worksheets). cheers for you help.

try =SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIFS(INDIRECT("'"&C2:C4&"'!A2:A6"),E2),(INDIRECT("'"&C2:C4&"'!A2:A6"),X2),(INDIRECT("'"&C2:C4&"'!A2:A6"),Y2)) where E2, X2 and Y2 are your criteria and INDIRECT("'"&C2:C4&"'!A2:A6" are your criteria range, where C2:C4 are your tab names and A2:A6 is your data range let me know if it works I'm actually very curious, didn't have time to run and test it myself. I just had to use one criteria so above easier formula did work wonders for me

Can you not specify your range of cells within a RANGE of sheets instead of "sheet1+sheet2+sheet3...." and specify a range to compare to like: countif(sheet1:sheet5!b:b, a:a)
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
tried it, didn't work. you need your tab(sheet) names in the cells for it to work. The cells are actually making up a range themselves, hence C2:C4 in the formula
