    EnableCrossSheetReference Property
    In This Topic
    Enables cross-sheet referencing for this component.
    Public Property EnableCrossSheetReference As Boolean
    Dim instance As FpSpread
    Dim value As Boolean
    instance.EnableCrossSheetReference = value
    value = instance.EnableCrossSheetReference
    public bool EnableCrossSheetReference {get; set;}

    Property Value

    Boolean: true if cross-sheet referencing is enabled; false otherwise

    In a multiple-sheet Spread component, a formula in a cell can refer to a cell in an entirely different sheet. This allows calculations to make use of data and formulas on any of the sheets in a Spread component. Referencing a cell in another sheet is called cross-sheet referencing.

    Set this property to true to allow and enable cross-sheet references; set this property to false to disallow or disable cross-sheet references.

    Refer to Sheet References in a Formula for more information about making the sheet name explicit in a cell reference.

    This example sums the values from the first sheet and places the sum in the second.
