INDIRECT Function

The INDIRECT function is one of the lookup and reference functions. It is used to return the reference to a cell based on its string representation.

The INDIRECT function syntax is:

INDIRECT(ref-text [, A1-ref-style-flag])

where

ref-text is a text representation of a cell.

A1-ref-style-flag is a representation style. It is an optional logical value: TRUE or FALSE. If it is set to TRUE or omitted, the function will analyse ref-text as an A1-style reference. If FALSE, the function will interpret ref-text as an R1C1-style reference.

  1. select the cell where you wish to display the result,
  2. click the Insert Function Insert Function icon icon situated at the top toolbar,
    or right-click within a selected cell and select the Insert Function option from the menu,
    or click the Function icon icon situated at the formula bar,
  3. select the Lookup and Reference function group from the list,
  4. click the INDIRECT function,
  5. enter the required arguments separating them by comma,
