Hello Can someone please let me know if there is a formula to find a value in a lower portion of a spreadsheet.

example: I want to return a value in cell B1 that corresponds with a number in cell C1. The desired value is in cells B5:B10.

By the way the selections in cells B5:B10 are names.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi TurtlesRun I would guess that you might use the "Indirect" function but to be sure I would need to understand what values you have in the cells and what your desired outcome is. Can you clarify these things?

I'm as confused as AlteK. You have a number in C1, your return value needs to "correspond" (?) with that number and you have names in B5:B10.

I'm not seeing the connection between C1 and the names, nor do I understand what you mean by "corresponds".

Perhaps an example of your data would help.

Please click on the following line and read the instructions found via that link before posting example data. Thanks!
