excel - nesting INDIRECT inside a VLOOKUP?

```Is it possible to nest an INDIRECT function inside of a VLOOKUP?

Here's what I've got so far:

Cell A27: 6-23-2004

Cell B27:
=VLOOKUP(B\$4,'6-23-2004'!\$A\$1:\$C\$70,3,FALSE)/60/60/24

I want to replace '6-23-2004' with INDIRECT(\$A27) so I can autofill
this formula across a large worksheet, and so when I adjust the date
range, it will dynamically update the information PROPERLY according to
the name (row 4 of same col) and date (col A of same row, referring to
a separate worksheet in the same workbook by that name) in the
formula.

I can't seem to get the syntax right. Is there a right syntax? I'm not
just trying to do something that isn't possible, am I? :confused:

```Try something like

=VLOOKUP(B\$4,INDIRECT(\$A27&"!\$A\$1:\$C\$70"),3,FALSE)/60/60/24

Excel VB-Copy formula down until adjacent cell (left) is blank?
Here is exactly what I am trying to do through VB in Excel: Weekly data pull fills colums A:G. Row count is always different. I am modifying the data pull through VB, and I have a VLOOKUP formula in cell H2. What I want VB to do is copy that formula down column H to the last row (with data) each week. I guess I want it to be dynamic so that as rows decrease/increase the formula is only copied down to the final row/record. I know someone out of this smart group will know how to do this!

Faulting application error in excel

How to represent a column in Excel
Hi, everyone I currently have a formula. {=SUM(IF((Data!G2:G75="Verified")*(Data!K2:K75<=7),1,0))} However, the length of both column G and K are not fixed. The data is retrieved from a remote database. Is there any other way to represent it ? Thanks One quick-and-dirty way is to just do the whole column, x`like: > {=SUM(IF((Data!G2:G65536="Verified")*(Data!K2:K65536<=7),1,0))} It won't be appropriate for Excel 2007, but is there any chance at all you'll actually fill the sheet to row 65536?

Printing EXCEL items in WORD
Excel seems to work better for tables than WORD's tables; yet when a table created in EXCEL is copied and pasted into a WORD document I caannot get the gridlines to print. Even thouigh in EXCEL the print gridlines instructions are checked. What should I do? I've always apply borders--either in Excel or in Word. In Word: select a cell in the table Table|Select|Table Format|borders and shading|borders tab check the All icon. The gridlines in Word don't print. Word's help says to use borders. (I just checked.)

We all use the same anti-virus and this is the only Excel document he has the problem with. He receives many from various source...

Why doesn't indirect work with a dynamic range created using offse
Hi Has anyone else experienced this issue or I am doing something wrong. I have a series of dynamic range names defined using offset. For example the name USCities is defined as =offset(AA1,0,0,Counta(AA:AA),1) and the name Europeancities is defined as =offset(AB1,0,0,counta(AB:AB),1) In column A, dataentry into the cells is limited to USCities or Europeancities. In column B, I want to limit data entry to the range name appearing in column A. For example if USCities is selected in A1, data entry in cell B1 is to be limited to those cells forming the USCities range name. I have tri...

In the last column of spreadsheet, if the text goes beyond the column boundary, how is the text truncated in the next cell.

Excel reporting alternatives

My team will be writing sql reports using visual studio etc but our Finance team are rather hoping that they can continue using some kind of excel reporting tool, any ideas would be most hopeful.

Data validation causing problems when using a data form in Excel 2
