hello all,
i'm having problem using the & thingy in a referance, the formula was ='Hours Report WE....xls'!totalsmonday which is fine, i'd like to use ='Hours Report WE....xls'!totals plus a referance to cell on the sheet the formula is on, i.e. i want to extract the day from a date =text(a1,"dddd") and use the words monday, tuesday etc as the end of the ref. how would write this???

thanks for any help

=INDIRECT("[book1.xls]sheet1!Totals" & TEXT(A1,"dddd"))

This only works when both workbooks are open.
