#### Summary Page - advancing name of sheet - PART DEUX

```Asked question previously regarding I have a linked summary page and was having problems dragging down the formula to reflect the various worksheets.
Sorry if I'm repeating myself, please bear w/ me.  The formula given to me is not working - I'm obviously doing something wrong.

Synopsis: My file has 52 sheets, the names of which alternate in the following pattern:  BioPP15, AAPP15, BioPP16, AAPP16, BioPP17, AAPP17........

My summary page is for key #'s from each sheet
Example of formula for sheet BioPP13 -   =BioPP13!K8   I want to drag it down so it will reflect the same cell, K8 from sheets BioPP14, BioPP15 etc.

Gord (thanks) supplied me with the following formula
=INDIRECT("BioPP"&(ROW())&"!K\$8")

When I entered in my summary sheet exactly as is I get #REF!
When I enter replacing ROW with 8, I am told there is a formula error.
Obviously when I drag down it makes no sense.

What am I doing wrong?
Everyone have a great weekend

```The ROW() returns the row number of whatever row you start the formula.

For BioPP13 you would start the formula in row 13 and drag/copy down from
there.

To start in any other row, say row 1, the formula would be

=INDIRECT("BioPP"&(ROW() + 12)&"!K\$8")

```Hi
you may try
=INDIRECT("'BioPP"&ROW(13:13) &"'!K\$8")

The ... ROW() ... part in the formula is sensitive
to where you put it.

ROW() returns the number of the row it is in, viz.:
In say, B2: =ROW() returns 2,
In B3, it'll returns 3, and so on, when you copy down

> Example of formula for sheet BioPP13 -   =BioPP13!K8

-------------------------------

Maybe try a slight revision
(which can be put in any start cell, say C4?):

In C4: =INDIRECT("BioPP"&ROW(A13)&"!K8")
Copy C4 down to C6

This will return the value in K8
from sheets BioPP13, BioPP14 and BioPP15
in C4 to C6

ROW(A13) will return the row of cell A13 which is 13
and also increments in the same way as ROW()
when you copy down

Person Name smart tag Performance Problem

However, there is a noticable delay when popping up the smart tag("Additional Actions") Sub-menu. At first I suppose the VerbCaptionFromID2() function is only called as many times as the number of verbs, but then I noticed that it is called about the "square of number of verbs" times. I'm wondering if this behaviour cause pop-up slow. Is there any way to reduce the calling times? Thanks in advance~ Regards, Albert H...

Page 1 is full with data...now what??

Once the area on Page 1 is full, is it possible to create another empty table on Page 2 so more data can be entered onto a new table that is formatted exactly like the table on Page 1??

Inter sheet formula won't format properly
Hi MS Excel 2003. I am writing a formula with a reference to a cell in another sheet, and Excel is behaving oddly. Sometimes it will give me the result, ie what is in the target cell, but sometimes it gives me the formula. The formula I am writing is simply ='2'!A22 thereby trying to get cell A22 from the sheet called 2. Why is Excel not always just giving me what's in the target cell? Sometimes all I can see is ='2'!A22. It's driving me nuts. I have looked at all the formatting options with no luck; I have toggled (using Ctrl`) the formula view with the norma...

Named Range, hidden row, auto-filter & macro buttons
My named range starts w/Row 14, which is hidden. A macro button inserts a new row below 14 so users may enter a new record. There are several reasons I’m doing it this way. 1) Inserting a new row between 14 & 15 ensures my named range is never altered, 2) Row 14 has conditional formatting that is copied onto Row 15 - keeping fields yellow until data is entered, and 3) the new record is always entered directly below directly below column titles. Aside from entering records I want users to be able to easily navigate through the large list or create custom narrowed down...
