How can I share information between multiple sheets in Excel?
I know now how to use "=sheet1!a1" to copy cells from sheet 1 to sheet 2,3
Is there is a formula that will allow me to enter data
into sheet 2, and have it copy automatically into sheet 1 and 3, or into
sheet 3 going to sheet 1 and 2? So that I can enter the data into any sheet
and have it transfer to all sheets, rather than always from sheet 1 to sheets
2 and 3.
Nothing built into excel (except for the formula you showed).
But I'd be very hesitant to separate my data. I'd do my best to keep all the
data on one worksheet.

...Importing unopened worksheet into an open Workbook
If an unopened Excel Workbook only contains a single worksheet, is it
possible to import the data from that worksheet into another Workbook that is
open, without having to open the other file?
You can write formulas in the open workbook that refer to the cells in the 2nd
workbook, regardless of the number of worksheets it contains. This creates a
"link" from workbook #1 to #2.
If #2 isn't open when you open #1, you'll be asked whether to update the
information from #2. This will happen without you seeing #2 appear on the
