Cell Value as Named Range Reference
Little bit of a quirky question...
Trying to use a cell value as a reference in a formula, where that
cell value is the name of a named range.
So, assume A1:A3 is a named range: Rng1. And, B1:B3 is Rng2.
I want to get the correlation vale for A1:A3 and B1:B3
So, cell D1 contains "Rng1" and D2 has "Rng2"; and cell D3 has the
formula: =correl(D1,D2). But I get an error. Have also tried using
Indirect to no avail.
Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thank you.

You can only make this switch if you change a column chart to a bar chart.
But if you want a line chart that's rotated, you can fake it:

I have multiple spreadsheets that I want to move certain information from to
get all my info into one spreadsheet. Is there anyway to search mutiple
spreadsheets by a column like "Part Number" and tell it to retrive another
column like "Qty" then post it into a corresponding column in another
worksheet by matching "Part Number"??
some questions upfront:
- how are your sheets named exactly
- columns IDs
- Are you searching for a numeric value only
- Is there only one occurence of each part number

You're better off using pointers for this. I believe, depending on the

Excel keeps changing to the R1C1 reference style, but only in one of my
workbooks (I believe in just one of the worksheets). I keep changing it back
(Tools - Options - General - R1C1 Reference Style), but when I move or copy
cells in the workbook, it changes back to R1C1. Anyone have an idea?
Look at the
TOOLS / OPTIONS / SETTINGS
is the 'R1C1 References Style' box checked?
If not, check it then save the workbook.
Not sure if this is your issue but it's worth a try.

I just discovered something that looks like a new excel bug:
to reproduce behaviour:
1. open a new workbook;
2. activate circular references;
3. enter those formulas:

B5 <- formula is =1+SE(B6;0;1)
B6 <- formala is =(B5=2)
B7 <- formula is =B5 (same as B4!!!)
(NB: SE() this is the standard IIF() function in the italian version
What's wrong: B4 and B7, will display different results even if they
contain the same formula. The result displayed depends on the position
of the cell conataining the formula: if it is on the left or above B5
