Drag and drop cell links

I have a sheet with 12 month of rows and many rows with amounts across the months (i.e. sales projections). I want to summarize by month in another sheet. So in a different summary sheet, I use a sum formula in month 1 and link to the details sheet. Now I want to do this for each month. In Excel, I'd drag the cell and Excel would know that I am referencing the next column(month). When I do that in SmartSheets, it just uses the same link as the first. It doesn't attempt to adjust the links to their relative position.

Am I doing something wrong or how do I do this? It will take forever to do this a month at a time for all the details I need.

    Hi @hiker360

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Unfortunately, it's the way it works.

    You could either cell-link more cells simultaneously or use cross-sheet formulas instead.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
