You could name the location of the data on each sheet with a name
created in a way that makes it easy to figure out the name from the row
number. You can then use the INDIRECT() function to retrieve the
information you want.

For example, on the second sheet, the name of the range could be
Source2. You would retrieve the information like this if you have the
formula on row 2:


This will return a reference to the full range, you can then use the
INDEX() function to retrieve the individual values from Ax to Ex.

I hope this helps.

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

Let's say I have 11 sheets in a Calc spreadsheet. Sheets 2 to 11
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
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
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!
