timetable issues


Hi, I am building a 41 week timetable and am hitting an issue with forwarding data from one week to the next. I need to have hours totals so I'm using 3 columns, R, S and T.

R for hours worked that week, S to bring forward the previous week's hours and T to show a running total all hours worked as each week passes.

On week 1,

In column R I'm using =SUM(C6:Q6) for hours worked that week.

with nothing in column S because it's the first week and there is nothing to bring forward.

In column T I used =R6+S6.

My issue is that when I get to week 2, in column S, I tried using =week1!T6 to bring forward the previous week's hours and it didn't work.

I would appreciate any help you can offer with this, thanks in advance.




Seems a bit overly complicated but without seeing an actual sample sheet, it's hard to tell. Perhaps you could attach one.  At any rate, I assume the tab of the sheet this is all on is called "week". Specifying it in the formula is not necessary. You could just have

Agreed with gebobs, you need to update your answer with a sample file to get more accurate help. Otherwise I would just guess that you entered the formula incorrectly.

Thanks guys, I'll try your suggestion tomorrow and if it doesn't work I assume I can post a sheet page to help explain it?

Yes, you just Edit your question and upload a sample file in Excel and we should both get a notification that you did this.

Hi guys, I've edited my initial question to include a sample of part of the first week of my timetable along with what I hope is a clear explanation of what I need the timetable to do. I look forward to your reply, thanks again.
