Something like
=VLOOKUP(A3,INDIRECT(B3 & "!$B$20:$C$100",2,FALSE) should work

Kieran, can't get it work did you mean


=VLOOKUP(A3,INDIRECT(B3 & "!")$B$20:$C$100",2,FALSE)

I have tried so many versions of this but still I can't get it right.

Kade,

sorry - I should have tested.

Hopefully you ended up with something like
=VLOOKUP(A3,INDIRECT(B3 & "!$B$20:$C$100"),2,FALSE)
