How to synchronously input or select cells across multiple sheets?

In Excel, to select or input a value into one cell is very simple, but how about synchronously selecting or inputting value to same cells across sheets in a workbook? Here I introduce the quick tricks on solving this problem.

In Excel, to synchronously input cells across multiple sheets, do as below:

1. Enable the workbook you need, and then hold Ctrl key to select the sheet tabs that you want to synchronously input values, see screenshot:
doc sychronize cell 1

2. Then select a cell in active sheet, and input the value you want. See screenshot:
doc sychronize cell 2

Then you can see every cell B10 in the selected sheets has been input same value. See screenshot:
doc sychronize cell 3

Tip: If you want to automatically update the cells, you can do as below:

1. Select a sheet, Sheet 1 for example, and select one cell, for instance, B10, and then enter the value you want, see screenshot:
doc sychronize cell 4

2. Hold Ctrl key to select all sheet tabs you will synchronize cells excluding the Sheet1, go to one selected sheet, and enter this formula =Sheet1!B10 into the cell B10, see screenshot:
doc sychronize cell 5

3. Press Enter key, now all B10 in selected sheets will be changed as B10 in Sheet1 changes.
