    Display cell text in another cell automatically

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out please?!?!

    I need to have a cell on Sheet2 display the TEXT from a cell on Sheet1, is his possible??

    Example:

    Sheet1, Cell A1 contains a clients name and I would like to have Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4 etc... Display that clients name in a cell of my choosing (could be a different cell on each Sheet) automatically after entering it once on Sheet1, cell A1.

    I thought this was possible but I can't seem to figure it out. I haven't done any real Excel work in quite a long time but I thought I had done this before a long time ago!! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks in advance...

    P.S. If I use autosum to do this it just displays the number 0, obviously, since it is trying to add numbers...

    I uploaded a copy of the spreadsheet, What I would like to happen is have the text from Sheet1,D4 automatically be placed in Sheet2,A1 and Sheet3, B2. Hope this helps

    What I would like to happen is have the text from Sheet1,D4 automatically be placed in Sheet2,A1 and Sheet3, B2
    In turn, select sheet2!A1 then Sheet3!B3 and enter this formula; =Sheet1!$D$4
    Each on the separate sheets will display whatever is entered in cell D4 on sheet1.

    I am not sure what you are after, you have a TextBox Covering A1 to I3
    But to reference Sheet1D4 anywhere else in the workbook, you can use
    =Sheet1!D4

    Thank you to both of you.

    =Sheet1!D4 is exactly what I needed!!!
