    Ok, one last thing for now is how i can lookup a cell and return it's actual name.

    I have this for returning the value in the cell...

    =VLOOKUP(F9,Customers,8)

    BUT, i also want a seperate one which will return the name of the cell. Which should be I3.

    I guess this is possible, anyone wanna give me a hand?

    please

    {=ADDRESS(MATCH(F9,INDEX(Customers,,1),0),MIN(COLUMN(Customers)-1+8),4)}

    Note: This is an array formula which must be entered using the Control+Shift+Enter key combination. The outermost braces, { }, are not entered by you -- they're supplied by Excel in recognition of a properly entered array formula.

    See the Excel Help topic for "About array formulas and how to enter them".

    Hi

    Assume your first Column in "Customers" is "H".

    =ADDRESS(MATCH(F9,$H$1:$H$1000,0),COLUMN(I1))

    Where "COLUMN(I1)" will represent the "column_index_num" 8 in your VLOOKUP.

    Not an array formula.
