    a 365 day report..easy way to create formula that repeats adding the previous sheet?

    I am doing a daily report and I am inputting all the formulas in but is there an easier way to have it automatically add the previous day without having to type in the previos sheet number each and every time...
    =(Sheet185!$F$5)+B5 then the next day =(Sheet186!$F$5)+B5...then next day =(Sheet187!$F$5)+B5...i have so many formulas that it takes forever to just go back through and change one number each day..I have already copied all the formulas over up until the end of this year but now I have to go back and change each sheet number on each formula..ugh..i just want a way for it automatically puts the previous sheet number in..

    I'm sorry if this is a stupid question as I am pretty new to this..help please
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    assuming you want to change Sheet 185 to Sheet 186

    Select the column/cell where you need to change the sheet and press Ctrl+H. Type Sheet185 in Find What: field and Sheet186 in Replace With Field and Press Replace All

    Once you've got this typed once, then you will just need to change the last digit of each sheet number

    try this as a suggestion. you will need to adjust the references to suite...

    =INDIRECT("Sheet"&ROW(D2)&"!"&"$A$2")+C12

    see the attached

    if your data is in column format, the formula i gave you should make those changes for you automatically
