Summary page -advancing name of sheet

I have a workbook with 52 sheets, the names of which alternate in the following pattern:  BioPP15,  AAPP15,  BioPP16,  AAPP16,  BioPP17, AAPP17, etc.

I have a summary page which I'm using for certain key #'s from each sheet.
Example of formula for sheet BioPP15 -   =BioPP15!$21

Question - how do I need to edit this formula so that when I drag it down it will read
=BioPP18!$21  etc.

Thanks in advance

To start with, =BioPP15!$21 is not a valid cell address.

Perhaps you meant =BioPP15!A$21

To increment sheet numbers use the following

=INDIRECT("BioPP" & (ROW()) & "!A$1")

Drag/copy down and it will increment.

Your start row will have to be adjusted.

Good Morning Gord
You're right, I inadvertantly left off the column designation in my question. Good catch.  It was in my formula though.

I'll try this solution as soon as I can.
Thanks for the assist.

Chart Axis naming question
