    Help indirect and mid formula referencing previous sheet

    Basically I have no idea how but i have the following formula which references a cell on a previous sheet


    =(INDIRECT(MID(CELL("filename",$A$1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",$A$1))+1,LEN(CELL("filename",$A$1))-FIND("]",CELL("filename",$A$1)))-1&"!I5")

    When i copy the formula down i want the formula to bring me I6 rather than I5

    AND ALSO THE SAME FOR ACROSS I WANT IT TO BRING J5 NOT I5

    Is there anyway i can do this without having to overtype the formula in each cell?


    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    PS I AM A COMPLETE NOVICE AND HAVE VERY LITTLE EXPERIENCE WITH EXCEL SO PLEASE GO EASY ON ME!

    Hi,

    Replace with:

    =INDIRECT(MID(CELL("filename",$A$1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",$A$1))+1,LEN(CELL("filename",$A$1))-FIND("]",CELL("filename",$A$1)))-1&"!"&ADDRESS(5+ROWS($A$1:$A1)-1,9+COLUMNS($A$1:A$1)-1,4,1))
