# Formula not working

1. ## Formula not working

I am using Excel 2007
Am trying to make a workbook with 10 worksheets. Sheets 1-9 are the same format, each with 12 columns, all the same layout. I want to SUM summarize onto sheet 10 a column from the other sheets, the criteria being that a col on each sheet (Catcode) has the same number as a col (Catno) on sheet 10. The formula I am trying to use in each cell of the Sheet10 cols is:
SUMIF('Database1.xlsm'!Catcode,sheet10!Catno,'Database1.xlsm'!TP)
Catcode is =Sheet1:Sheet9!\$B\$4:\$B\$41
Catno is =Sheet10!\$A\$4:\$A\$58
TP is =Sheet1:Sheet9!\$KK\$4:\$K\$41

I have tried saving the formula as an array (Ctrl-SH-Enter) but to no effect. I get #VALUE in each cell.
If I succeed I will be expanding the size of each Sheet 1-9 to a possible 3000 rows each.

Any help would be welcome

Why not put all data on 1 sheet (instead of 9 sheets).

Then a pivot table can do the work for you.

Hello Billirl,

You can't use a 3d reference like that in SUMIF - try this formula in Sheet10 row 4 copied down

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(INDIRECT("Sheet"&{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}&"!B4:B41"),A4,INDIRECT("Sheet"&{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}&"!K4:K41")))

Thanks, but does not work. All Indirects show up with #Value from each sheet on evaluating formula. result overall =0 in Sheet10:Col 6, copied down. Does the Col make a difference?
I do not want to append as I want to keep each page discrete for later examination.
I note your ref to 3-D but have not seen this stated anywhere - this is why I tried SUMIF.
Regards

Are you using exactly the formula I suggested? Are the sheets actually called sheet1, sheet2, sheet3 etc.?

I created a small test version and it works OK for me.......

Sincere apologies. Transcribing with my eyesight and an old monitor was not a good idea. I copied it and it worked perfectly.
Sincere thamks.
