    Cool Formula to bring back cell accross multiple sheets

    Hello fellow Excellers!

    I have a workbook that contains 100 or so Invoices.
    Each invoice is on a separate sheet and the name of that sheet is the invoice number eg INV1, INV2, INV3

    I am trying to create a master sheet that contains the invoice total for each individual sheet - The total is located in cell H20 within each of the invoices

    If for example in A1 down to A100 I have the name of the sheet (so A1= INV1, B1=INV2 all the way down to INV100) and I know that the total for each invoice is in H20 of each sheet, is there an easy way for me to write a formula using the sheet name located in column A ?

    The manual way is to type ='INV1'!P20
    I have tried typing =A1&"!"P20 but it doesn't seem to work

    Hope this makes sense.......

    Thanks All !!

    Marcos
