Ok,

Just recieved some great help for some peeps out there for helping me craft this formuale;

=INDIRECT("'"&\$B\$2-1&"-"&\$B\$2&"'!O"&ROW())

This helped me fill an array with data contained on another sheet depending on the value of a particular cell in the original....

This is the sheet using the formulae;

However, now what i need to do the same for the colum named "hours lost to sickness" which is calculated on another sheet. show below;

http://s188.photobucket.com/albums/z303/thesproing/?action=view&current=employeerecords.jpg

If we go back to the first table, this is the formula i am currently using to caluclate the value of the cells in colum N;

I knopw its a big ask, but is there any way of using a combination of IF, VLOOKUP and MATCH to simplify it all?

Something like....IF(B2=x,INDEX('Emplyee Records"!C5:Z34,MATCH("Employee Records""B2-1&"-"&B2",ROW())) ???

or maybe INDIRECT(INDEX('Emplyee Records"!C5:Z34,MATCH("Employee Records""B2-1&"-"&B2",ROW()))

I know im on the right track, i just dont have the experiance to get it right!!!

Any help, whatsoever would be amazing!!!!!!!

=IF(\$B\$2=\$A\$37,'Employee Records'!H7,IF(\$B\$2=\$A\$38,'Employee Records'!I7,IF(\$B\$2=Sickness!\$A\$39,'Employee Records'!J7,IF(Sickness!\$B\$2=Sickness!\$A\$40,'Employee Records'!K7,IF(\$B\$2=\$A\$41,'Employee Records'!L7,0)))))
