    Hi Chandoo,

    The topic is very interesting, and I liked your podcast. But it would be it be really great if you can look forward to post a video on it. Video would be much easier to follow through along for complex topics.

    Hi Chandoo,

    Is there a way to select the named range (say javed) directly with any formulae.
    For eg I want to know Javed's Sale in month of Apr.
    I put two data validated input cell ( with list inputs), and then in an output cell refer:-
    "named range javed auto selected as per input cell" "space operator" "named range apr auto selected as per input cell" to get the final result.
    Can it be done?
