make them work but the dont!

I am looking up the value of column D in 1 worksheet to look across 10

different sheets (which are all named) and then return the results as "1,0"

when done into another sheet. So i am just looking up names from column D of

sheet"names" and then looking across 10 sheets, again in the same column - D.

These are the formulae i have tried. the 1st works on the sheets being

called sheets 1,2 etc and not being renamed and the 2nd formula allows you to

name the sheets then refer to them seperatly. i would like to use the 2nd as

i all my sheets are named.

=VLOOKUP(B1,INDIRECT("sheet"&MATCH(TRUE,COUNTIF(INDIRECT("sheet"&ROW(INDIRECT("1:10"))&"!d2:d100"),B1)>0,0)&"!d2:d100"),1,0)

=VLOOKUP(B2,INDIRECT(""&INDEX($A$1:$A$3,MATCH(TRUE,COUNTIF(INDIRECT(""&$A$1:$A$3&"!d2:d100"),B1)>0,0))&"!d2:d100"),1,0)

I either get the response N/A or VALUE. i dont know if i have got all the

referenes correct, maybe thats why its not working.

maybe the "d2:d100" is incorrect as i repeat it in the formula, but this is

the range where the lookup should look in.

I hope im making sense.

Thanks for your help.
