    indirect function within sumif to reference other sheets

    Hi everyone,

    I have a workbook with many sheets, most of them being financial
    information, ie last year actual / budget, this year actual/budget etc.

    I then have a sheet which I am making a report on to summarise all of
    the other information. Each line is a sumif of all the relevant cost /
    income types. Ie office expenses would be a sumif on all the expense
    classified as office expenses.

    What i want (need) to do is have a drop down box where users can select
    the data they want the report to be populated with. Ie they can select
    last years budget numbers and all the sum if formulae will be
    calculated off last years budget sheet.

    I think the way to do this is with the indirect formula within the sum
    if, but I can't seem to get the syntax right.

    Normally I would just have
    =sumif(bud0506!$g$g,sheet1$a$1,bud0506!$i$i)
    so I want the sheet to be dynamic, so i have a drop down menu linked to
    cell a2, so cell a2 would have bud0506 in it, so i then would have
    =sumif(indirect($a$2&$g$g),sheet1$a$1,indirect($a$2&$i$i)

    But I just can't seem to get the syntax correct, any help would be
    greatly appreciated.

    =SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&$a$2&"'!G:G"),Sheet1!$A$1,INDIRECT("'"&$a$2&"'!I:I"))

    Thanks Bob that works - although you have to pay very close attention
    to the syntax - the " ' " stuff is really easy to get wrong I found.

    I know, that's why I did.
