I explain how you can do this and please go to the bottom of the page to see the animated gif tutorial:


STEP 1: Hold the CTRL button and select the worksheets with the left mouse button that need editing.

For our example, we need to select the 2016, 2017, and 2018 worksheets while holding the CTRL button (this will turn each selected sheet to a white color).

STEP 2: Edit the cell in any one of the worksheets.  Let us change the Dvv to Dec and press ENTER.

This will change all of the worksheet values to reflect the same change.
