Summing instances of text across worksheets
Hello, I have a workbook with separate sheets for each month. The sheets
contain a list client names (entered exactly the same on each sheet). I need
to summarize how many times a client name appears in total. For example, John
Brown may appear Jan & Feb (=2) where Mary Brown may appear Jul, Sep, Dec
I've been trying pivot tables without luck. Hoping someone can help.
Thanks in advance!
Never mind, I consolidated all the worksheet data into one and the pivot
table works fine.

What gateway are you using? What you would need to do is to snd a

Most likely you are using a webpage interface from your PC to interface
with the gateway. So opening up an internet explorer and goiong to an

Steps to reproduce:
