Using a cell to reference a sheet name in a Sumif formula

...And thanks in advance for your help...

I am creating an accounting spreadsheet that i would like to accommodate ease of adding account to the doc to the summary page.  The doc will work as follows:

In the Summary tab the account template column will be copied when a new account is being added,  change the year row if needed (B6 in this example) and then type the name in the account name cell (C3 here) that references a tab name copied from and renamed from an account tab template.  

The cell I need help with is C7 (in "summary" tab), which will sum all expenses for the month of january.  The problem i am having is getting the formula to accept the sheet name when trying to reference cell C3.

I looked this up... thought i found a solution, but anything i tried returns an error.  The closest I've come is the following that returns an error "Argument must be a range":


thanks again,
