# long formulas needs shortened to assign a names

I have a couple long formulas I need to shorten to be able to assign them to names. This is an extension of my previous post - Named formula needs to reference any tab and not just the one it was created on

I was able to figure out how to get the formulas to not change regardless of the tab they're on and was able to assign names to most of the formulas I created for easier replicating when new checks are issued. The following 2 formulas are too long to assign them to a name so I'm hoping someone can help me shorten or cancat them so they still retain the same functionality. They work like the other one in the previous post and pull info from the current tab only.

This formula when spilled pulls the amounts of the jobs paid on that check and stops when there are no more entries.

=IF(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$"&COUNTA(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$50"))-4)<>"",VALUE(TEXT(INDEX(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$"&COUNTA(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$50"))-3),MATCH("Check Amount",INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$"&COUNTA(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$50"))-4),0)+ROW(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$"&COUNTA(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$50"))-4))),"\$##0.00")),)

This formula allows spills of the customer names and workers, and stops when there are no more entries on the check. It's has to be different form the above one because I need it to cross columns and pull information, and there are a couple columns in between the job amount and the customer on the checks and that's information I don't need for the formula.

=IF(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$"&COUNTA(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$50"))-4)<>"",INDEX(INDIRECT(MID("ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ",COLUMN(),1)&"\$1:"&MID("ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ",COLUMN(),1)&"\$"&COUNTA(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$50"))-3),MATCH("Check Amount",INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$"&COUNTA(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$50"))-4),0)+ROW(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$"&COUNTA(INDIRECT("\$H\$1:\$H\$50"))-4))),)

### Excel Facts

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.
