I have trying to solve this problem all evening, with no hint of success:

Let's say I have 11 sheets in a Calc spreadsheet. Sheets 2 to 11 contain data summarized in cells A1:E1 of each sheet.

I want to capture these summary data in sheet 1, starting with cell A1:E1. But I then want to copy those cells into the next row and have the references point to the next SHEET - sheet 3.

The general problem is that I have a number of sheets from which I want to capture such summary data, but without having to manually edit the cell formulas each time to get them to point to the next sheet.

Incidentally, the sheet names are NOT sheet1, sheet2, etc. So moving to the next sheet needs to use some general method of incrementing the sheet reference.

Is there an artful way to do this?

Thanks for any ideas offered!
