Using Dynamic Cell Address As Formula Location
I am using the following formula to return cell address $G$16:
=IF(E11>0,CELL("address",OFFSET(E17,1,E17)),"") I wish to then use the cell address as a formula location...cell address will change depending on the value in E17. Appreciate any ideas. Thanks, Sven

What do you mean by: "use the cell address as a formula location"?
Do you want to use that reference in another formula? Assume the result of that formula is in cell A1. Since that formula can return either a blank or a text reference you'd have to test for the blank: =IF(A1="",value_if_true,....................) If A1 does contain the text reference then you need to use the INDIRECT function to reference it: INDIRECT(A1). Since you didn't describe how you want to use that reference I don't know how to finish the above IF formula.

Oh, in that case you'll need to use VBA code. I can't help you with that.
Someone that can do that will probably "stop in" or, you could post this question in the programming forum. Biff > wrote in message s.com... > On Mar 5, 10:24 pm, "T.

Using Dynamic Cell Address As Formula Location
Hi
The following short piece of code may help to get you started on a solution Sub test() Dim c As Range ' cells(1,1) is "A1" Change both references to the same cell location as you ' currently have your formula Cells(1, 1) = "=IF(E11>0,CELL(""address"",OFFSET(E17,1,E17)),"""")" Set c = Cells(1, 1) If c = "" Then Exit Sub Range(c.Text) = "=$B5*E11" End Sub You can copy the code and paste it into your Visual Basic Editor (VBE) in a Standard Module located in your file. To do this, Alt + F11 (open VBE) Ctrl + R (open Project Explorer) Select the file name on the left Insert > Module Paste code in Module David McRitchie has lots of useful help on his site at http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/excel/install.htm http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/excel/getstarted.htm  Regards Roger Govier > wrote in message s.com... > On Mar 5, 10:24 pm, "T.
