Hi,
I have this
Worksheets("Sheet1").range("B65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) = Worksheets("Sheet2").range(pIndex & "2").Value
where pIndex = A

I've tried also
range(pIndex & "2")

but it doesn't work.
It gives me the first cell value instead of the second. Why?

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.

This returned the contents of A2 when I tried it:

Code:
Sub Test()
    Const pIndex As String = "A"
    MsgBox Worksheets("Sheet2").Range(pIndex & "2").Value
End Sub

Doesn't it for you?

Hi

It works for me - it returns the value in A2 from the second sheet. Are you absolutely sure it isn't pulling back the value in A2?

this is my structure
Option Explicit
...
Dim pIndex As String

Sub mySub

if(x=1) then
pIndex = "A"
endif

if(x=2) then
pIndex = "B"
endif


Worksheets("Sheet1").range("B65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) = Worksheets("Sheet2").range(pIndex & "2").Value

End mySub

Your code will return the value of A2 or B2 depnding on the value of x. Doesn't it?
