Hi all,
In cell A1 I have the text: "B1"
In cell B1 I have the value: "Good Morning!"
In cell A2 I want to have a formula that according to the value on A1 gets the value of that cell.

In this case the formula would return "Good Morning".

Thanks for your reply!
FC.

Maybe the "Indirect" function?
