    Using Indirect in VLookup

    I want to use "Indirect" in my VLookup to give the starting range to search.

    I want to substitute, Indirect(E16) for $B$1 in the following formula.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.


    =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP($C$8,'Relativity Summary'!$B$1:$J$65536,9,FALSE)),"No More",VLOOKUP($C$8,'Relativity Summary'!$B$1:$J$65536,9,FALSE))

    Try it this way:

    =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP($C$8,INDIRECT("'Relativity Summary'!"&E16&":$J$65536"),9,FALSE)),"No More",VLOOKUP($C$8,INDIRECT("'Relativity Summary'!"&E16&":$J$65536"),9,FALSE))

    where it is assumed that E16 contains something that looks like a cell address, like B1, B15 etc. (no need for the $ symbols, as it is text).

    Hope this helps.

    so to use in your formula

    =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP($C$8,indirect("'Relativity Summary'!"&E16&":$J$65536"),9,FALSE)),"No More",VLOOKUP($C$8,indirect("'Relativity Summary'!"&E16&":$J$65536"),9,FALSE))

    Re: Using Indirect in VLookup

    What version of Excel are you using?

    What type of data does the formula normally return? Is it TEXT? Numeric? Could be both? Something else?
