I am a newbie and have a feeling this isn't that difficult however have been searching the forums and the similar items are a little more complex then what i'm trying to do but i can't get it to work.
here is the scenerio:
I have a summary sheet in which the column header is the name of another worksheet that my data is in. The row name on the summary sheet is the name of the data field in the data sheet i want to get pull.
My intent is on the summary sheet to use the column name to go to the "data" sheet and the row name to find the cell with the data i need on that sheet.
I am able to use indirect to go to the data sheet and in the correct location but don't know how to include a search using the row to find the data point.
here is my example
Worksheet1 is named-> Summary
Column Name in b10 is "Data"
Row Name in A11 is "total"
Worksheet2 is named -> Data
Cell E1 contains "Total"
Cell F1 contains the value i want to reference on the summary sheet in cell b11
I was able to use =INDIRECT(B10&"!f1") to get the value i want on the sheet but it is hard coded to that cell.
I would like to be able to use the summary sheet row name "total" to find the location on the data sheet which is in f1.
I was thinking match would accomplish this but i can't seem to make it work. here was my first try which was very unsucessful (I named the range with all the value on the data sheet metrics) metrics = $E$1:$L$4
