    Compilation Work Sheet

    I have a workbook with about 12 worksheets for each of the various vendors I use.
    Each sheet has a column for date-description of items-cost if item-and a column for balance owed.

    My question is:
    I'd like to create a sumary or compilation worksheet which I can designate one cell per vendor worksheet.
    These cells will show the balance owed from each vendor.
    Say I have 12 worksheets, then I'll have 12 cells on the Compilation worksheet.
    One for each worksheet.

    Thank you.

    Have a look at SUMIF.

    Thank you for your reply, but I don't understand how to identify the last cell in the balance column which has a number in it. This balance may fluctuate daily as new rows (cells) are added thru the course of activity.
    Let's say my column A is date of purchase starting with earliest date in A-1 and going down the column A each time I purchase.
    Column D will be the balance column.
    If last purchase is in say Row 10, and D-10 is the balance owed, then how do I specify D-10 on the compilation sheet cell, and, have it automatically change to D-11 when the next purchase/credit is posted?
    Each purchase or credit will be on a seperate row below the last used.

    Thank you for your advice.

    To adapt to the length of ranges, you can use dynamic ranges.
    It is all explained here

    if you name the ranges for use in sumif they are dynamic
    so say you have a list of vendors in b1 through to b10
    go insert/ name /define type a name for the range lets say vendor
    click in the refers to box then click cell b1 and highlite down to b10
    so it says (depending on worksheet)something like
    =Sheet1!$B$1:$B$10
    clickadd
    now do the same for the column whers sales are say column d1:d10
    go insert/ name /define type a name for the range lets say sales
    =Sheet1!$d$1:$d$10
    now in d11 put =sum(sales) and all in range sales will be totaled
    in another cell put =SUMIF(vendor,F1,sales)
    now if you type the name of vendor in f1 it will return all sales total for that vendor only
    now the good bit insert a row so d11 moves down and becomes d12
    the range will automatically change. if you look at your defined ranges you (use insert/name /define and click on a name the new range will be displayed just click close to exit without changing anything)will see they have changed to =Sheet1!$D$1:$BD$11 and =Sheet1!$B$1:$B$11
    and the formula inow in d12 will total d1:d11
    and the sum if will still work from criteria in f1 including the added row.

    Thank you for your reply but I'm having no success.
    My first balance begins in cell (F5) and goes on down the column to a point not yet reached.
    I'm needing the last balance shown in that column whether it be (F5), (F10), or (F150).
    I've tried the formula but I'm getting #REF and also VALUE.
    Sorry, but I don't understand what I'm doing here.
    Thanks again for your help.
