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.
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?
Can you post the sample workbook.? So atleast we can work on that and give you a proper solution.
use something like =INDIRECT(M20) INDIRECT(N20) where m20 and n20 are the input cells
Thank you Jake, that works.
And this can help me a lot.
