Seems simple enough, but I have no idea how to do this. Here's an example: =IF(ROW(A3)<AO$1,'Page2'!$A?,""), where the question marks denotes the row number, the value of which, I want to get from another cell altogether. For example,say cell B1 had the value of 1000 and I wanted to use that value as my row number in the above formula so something like =IF(ROW(A3)<AO$1,'Page2'!$A(value from B1),"") = =IF(ROW(A3)<AO $1,'Page2'!$A1000,"") Thanks, K

I think adding INDIRECT to my excel lexicon will be useful in the future too.
