Excel/automatic fill of tab in spreadsheet


I have a file in which several sales persons of our company fill in data on their own tab. Each tab consists of a database (column A - K, and an endless number of rows). Is there a way to gather all the data on the separate tabs and put automatically on a "totals"-tab?

Please advise.

Kind regards,
Bas Klijn

Ron de Bruin provides code that might work for you:

He addresses several situations.  

I don't see an easy formula solution.
