One of the features of Excel that is often overlooked is working with grouped worksheets. When you group the worksheets within a workbook, you can perform operations to several worksheets at one time. This eliminates the necessity of doing the same operation over and over to different worksheets. To group worksheets which are next to each other in the workbook: Click on the sheet tab for the first worksheet. Hold the Shift Key. Click on the last sheet tab to be included in the group. To group worksheets which are not right next to each other: Click on the sheet tab for the first worksheet. Hold the Control Key. Click on each sheet tab to be included in the group
Linking by creating a formula. With this method you can create an inter_active link between worksheets or workbooks. The linked cells do not need to be in the same location on all worksheets. You can perform any math operation while creating the link. For example, you could take a figure from one worksheet, multiply it times a figure form another worksheet and then subtract a number from a third worksheet. You can use this method to link cells across worksheets or workbooks. One disadvantage of this method is that it is time consuming because you are working with one cell at a time. Using named ranges can assist with this method of linking and make it easier to read your formulas once they are created.
