In column A i have the names of various tabs. In columns C, D & E I need to bring values from certain locations in the tab identified in column A. Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks

Brad

can you give an example??

In column A there are the names of the worksheet tabs. Road_A, Road_B, Road_C, etc. In column C I need the product of cell $C$6 x $C$7 from the worksheet identified in column A, in Column D, i need the value of $D$6 from the worksheet identified in column A, In Column E, i need to sum $B$7 + $B$8 and so on. I need a way to have the worksheet name as a variable so i don't have to manually enter the formula for each worksheet. Hopefully this better explains what i'm trying to do. Thanks

did you get my additional information??

With your sheet tab name in Column A cell 1

try this:

In column C I need the product of cell $C$6 x $C$7 from the worksheet identified in column A,=INDIRECT($A$1&"!"&"C6")*INDIRECT($A$1&"!"&"C7")

in Column D, i need the value of $D$6 from the worksheet identified in column A,=INDIRECT($A$1&"!"&"D6")

In Column E, i need to sum $B$7 + $B$8=INDIRECT($A$1&"!"&"B7")+INDIRECT($A$1&"!"&"B8")

That works great! Thanks
