Not sure if this is possible, but I want to be able to use the value in a cell to reference another cell.

eg.

If the cell value is of c1=9 , I want my function to be =sum(a1:a9) where the 9 is the value from c1.

Thanks!

To reference the cell value of C1 and place the value into A1
type =C1 into A1 cell. Not sure if this is what you are looking for? Where does A1 get its value?
