    You can't use INDIRECT on closed workbook.

    I assume you want the formula to work when workbook is closed? If that's the case, you'll either need to use custom INDIRECT UDF (do a Google search and you should find couple).
    However, these will have limitations as well.

    Another method is to use named range. See link below.

    It isn't clear to me what exactly you are trying to achieve here.
    CC is only tracked in Balance sheet & January sheet. Yet, you are referencing ABC sheet...

    As well, your data set up isn't ideal for data analysis or lookup operation. I'd recommend setting up flat table to perform your operation.

    Hi CK76!

    both files are just mock files they are not the actual files being used, the files is more inclined to a calculator rather than to a data analysis type and the sheets i entered in the mock files are just samples. thanks will take the advice on your first post, having to know that indirect cannot work on close workbook, will try another formula. (will tag the thread as solved)
