Creating a Sum across worksheets. This is also an inter_active link. If a number changes on one worksheet, the sheet with the summary formula will also be updated. If a worksheet is inserted between worksheets in the sum, the sum will automatically be updated. Some of the disadvantages of this method are that all of the linked cells must be in the same location on all worksheets. Also, you can only sum one cell at a time (although you can copy the formula to other cells in the summary worksheet.) Using group mode to create identical spreadsheets will help when using the sum function across worksheets. This method is also limited to within a workbook and cannot be done across workbooks.
Using Paste Link. This also creates an inter_active link. The linked cells do not need to be in the same location on all worksheets. You can link between worksheets or workbooks. This is a great way to link totals from one worksheet to another, however, you do not have the detail that is provided by Consolidation.
