Is it possible to SUM across sheets without having to name each sheet.
i.e. something like SUM(Sheet5.E4:Sheet9.E4) instead of
Example: =SUM(Sheet1.A1:Sheet2.C6) -- will total everything in Sheet1
and Sheet2 in cells A1 through C6. It will not include a value in,
e.g., Sheet1.D1.

My sheets are named Bill, Bob, Tom Dick and Harry.
Bill is Sheet5 SUM(Sheet5.E4:Sheet9.E4) doesn't work.
SUM(Bill.E4:Harry.E4) doesn't work.
SUM(Bill.E4,Bob.E4,Tom.E4,Dick.E4,Harry.E4) does work.
Once you rename a sheet, you have to use the sheet's name. If you
create the formula before renaming a sheet, the formula will be

If the first sheet is Bill and the last sheet is Harry and you want to
add values in cell E4 of each sheet: =SUM(Bill.E4:Harry.E4)

Thanks TR and to Regina.
I could not get this to work this morning at home (#Ref errors), but it does here at work (I just fetched the sheet off my home PC). The sheet is a few years old so probably originated in OOO but the OS and LO versions at work and home should be the same. I will check, it is working now so that is what is important.
Cheers, Steve
