can the v look up function choose different same ranges from differnt work sheets through may be a drop down menu of dates.
for example different work sheets for differnt dates and then a drop down menu chooses the range in the look up function?
let say you have
but you want to change the table you are looking up from.
if you use
and A1 contains the value "sheet2", it will look to sheet 2. Change the value in A1 to sheet3, it will look to sheet 3. If you use indirect to reference another workbook, the workbook must be open. You can use validation on A1 as you say to limit the choices to valid ones.
(should have second vlookup argument above) This message was edited by IML on 2002-10-16 19:24
