    Indirect with Match/Index function

    Hello,

    I am looking for a formula that combines an INDIRECT function (references a different worksheet) and a MATCH/INDEX function.

    My Master sheet has the INDIRECT reference (January, February or March). Each sheet with month names has Match function with desired sequence order. All I want to do is select a month on Master that would automatically go to that sheet and INDEX data based on MATCHed row.

    I want to avoid unnecessary help columns to reduce formulas (workbook is already too big).

    My Master sheet has the desired result (in yellow) based on the reference month.

    Thanks

    Since indirect will slow your performance with an big sheet, I used VBA to get the result.

    See the attached file.

    Try these...

    Entered in E27 and copied down:

    =INDEX(INDIRECT(B$26&"!A:A"),MATCH(D27,INDIRECT(B$26&"!C:C"),0))

    Entered in F27. Format as date then copy down:

    =INDEX(INDIRECT(B$26&"!B:B"),MATCH(D27,INDIRECT(B$26&"!C:C"),0))
