To create 3D reference to sum same range across sheet, it’s very easy.
Select a cell which you will place the result at, type this formula =SUM(Jan:Dec!B1), Jan and Dec are the first and last sheets you need to sum across, B1 is the same cell you sum, press Enter key.
1. You also can sum the same range across sheets by changing the cell reference to a range reference =SUM(Jan:Dec!B1:B3).
2. You also can use named range to sum same range across sheets as below:
Click Formulas > Define Name to enable the New Name dialog.
In the New Name dialog, give the range a name, type this =‘Jan:Dec’!B1 into the Refers to textbox, and click OK.
In a blank cell, type this formula =SUM(SumTotal) (SUMTotal is the specified named range you defined in the last step) to get the result.
