Good Day all!

I appreciate the ability to read others posts and make sense of my own code...but this is a doozy! I have read so many posts, and I know it's probably a missing single/double quote... or maybe I'm missing it all together...

I have 3 workbooks open and I have been able to store the month in a function... and I can get the workbook to open to the correct sheet... but now, my index/match formula is giving me some issues.

Here's what I've written so far:

VBA Code:
Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim wb As Workbook
    Dim wb1 As Workbook
    Dim wb2 As Workbook
    Dim wb3 As Workbook
    Dim ws1 As Worksheet
    Dim addmonth As Variant

    Set wb1 = ActiveWorkbook
        'wb1= Flex Reports Template
    Workbooks("FLEX Data 2021").Activate
    Set wb2 = ActiveWorkbook
        ' wb2= Flex Data 2021
    Workbooks("Flex Team Reporting").Activate
    Set wb3 = ActiveWorkbook
        'wb3= Flex Team Reporting
    wb1.Activate

    Sheets("WFMs").Select
'display Enter_Month form
    addmonth = Enter_Month.GetMonth
'if cancel is pressed, exit sub
    If Val(addmonth) = vbCancel Then Exit Sub

'On Template, enter month into A4, and paste into all rows of table
    Range("A4").Select
    Range("A4").Value = addmonth & Year(Date)
    ActiveCell.Copy
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste

    wb2.Activate
    Sheets(addmonth).Select
    Set ws1 = ActiveSheet
      

'Paste the formula provided into C4 and copy into rows/columns for all employees
    wb1.Activate
    Range("C4").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
        "=index('[" & wb2 & "]" & ws1 & "'!" & r4c4:r37c13," & _
        "match(rc2,"'[" & wb2 & "]" & ws1 & "'!" & r4c2:r37c2,0),"match(r3c,"'[" & wb2 & "]" & ws1 & "'!" & r3c4:r3c13,0))"
        
       ' "=INDEX('[" & wb2 & "]" & ws1 & "'!R4C4:R37C13",MATCH(RC2,[" & wb2 & "]" & ws1 & "!R4C2:R37C2",0)," & _
        '    "MATCH(R3C,[" & wb2 & "]" & ws1 & "!R3C4:R3C13",0))"

The formula should be going to wb2, the correct month, and matching the agent's name with the header and providing the data. I've written the formula several times and then commented them out...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

How about
VBA Code:
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
        "=index('[" & wb2.Name & "]" & ws1.Name & "'!r4c4:r37c13,match(rc2,'[" & wb2.Name & "]" & ws1.Name & "'!r4c2:r37c2,0),match(r3c,'[" & wb2.Name & "]" & ws1.Name & "'!r3c4:r3c13,0))"
