In my Excel workbook, there are 2 ws: tab named "4" & "5" respectively.
In 4:
AA2='5'!Z13

Output required: in cell AJ2 : the value in cell D13 of ws "5" by using reference to the cell content of AA2.
How to accomplish?

In above formula: You are using 5 DIRECTLY. Can there be a formula which can 'identify' the ws tab name & can be used?
Why I require this: Suppose instead of AA2='5'!Z13 had there been AA2='8'!Z13 so I would require referncing with respect to ws 8.

Moreover, something like X rows DOWN & Y columns RIGHT

What does you formula return? If it's D13:

D13=527.20
Your formula is giving AJ2= #REF!

In that case you would need a macro to get the formula from AA2.

It's not possible without a macro sorry. You could put the sheet name in a cell, eg A1, and use a formula like:

=INDIRECT("'"&A1&"'!Z13")
