Please see attached. I am trying to come up with a formula that will "transpose" or link the data in worksheets AE into a summary Sheet 1. In addition, the data in worksheets B, D & E should be transposed or linked to Sheet 1 as negative numbers. Any ideas? I have been trying sumproduct, but can't seem to get the syntax right. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Sheets A...E don't indicate the year. Are the data for January 2006 through March 2007? Or for January 2007 through March 2008? Or ...?

Sorry Hans. The data on sheets AE are for the period January 2007 through March 2008.

In B2:
=IF(OR(B$1="A",B$1="C"),1,1)*OFFSET(INDIRECT("'"&B$1&"'!A3"),DAY($A2),MONTH( $A2)+12*(YEAR($A2)=2008))
Fill right to F2, then down as far as needed.

Hi Hans. Thanks again for your help. I have now run into a slight variation on the original problem. Instead of "transposing" the data to Sheet1 in the same worbook, I need to "transpose" the data to Sheet1 of another, separate workbook, that let's call Workbook2. How would I change the formula? I have tried several ways, but nothing seems to work. The cell locations on Sheet1 of Workbook2 would be the same as originally posed.
Thanks again.

The formula would become
=IF(OR(B$1="A",B$1="C"),1,1)*OFFSET(INDIRECT("'[Jeff_Test.xls]"&B$1&"'!A3"),DAY($A2),MONTH($A2)+12*(YEAR($A2)=20 08))
where Jeff_Test.xls is the workbook with the A, B, C, D and E sheets.
Warning: the formulas will only work if the other workbook is open. The INDIRECT function doesn't work with closed workbooks.

Thanks Hans. I knew there was a problem with the SUMIF function when the other workbook wasn't open (use the SUM9IF( instead). Any workaround for the INDIRECT function?

The free addin Morefunc contains  among others  a function INDIRECT.EXT that has the same function as INIDRECT but that works with closed workbooks too.
Downside is that every user of the workbook will have to install the addin.

Slight problem: as I indicated earlier, the data covers 15 months from January 2007 through March 2008. However, when I plugged in your formula, the data started repeating itself on 1/1/2008 (i. e., the same data as 1/1/2008). Any ideas?

I posted this same message on Mr Excel: "Thanks for pointing this out Rory. Yes I do crosspost certain topics to get a feel for the different views. As you can see from the answers, the answers are quite different. I didn't realize there was a policy on either this or Woody's Board that frowns on this practice. I have come to appreciate and look to both Boards for guidance in all Office matters. I apologize for any offense."
Again, I apologize for any offense that anyone has with my actios.

We (the Lounge) don't, AFAIK, have any rule against cross posting on different sites, so I don't think anyone is taking offense. It's just helpful to mention that you have done so, not least so that others could also benefit from the different responses. At MrExcel it's much the same philosophy, I think. It also helps people not to spend time coming up with the same answer you already got somewhere else!

Make sure that you have filled down the formulas correctly and that you haven't turned off automatic calculation. The formulas DO work correctly  I have just tested them again.
