You can use:

=a1&a2
to concatenate a couple of cells.

To refer to that in another formula, you'd need something like:

=indirect("'" & a1&a2 &"'!A1")

or if there's a chance your concatenated string refers to a non-existing
worksheet and you want to avoid a #ref! error, you can check first:

=IF(ISERROR(CELL("address",INDIRECT("'"&A1&A2&"'!a 1"))),"missing",
INDIRECT("'"&A1&A2&"'!a1"))

(all one cell)

I would like to concatenate cell values to create a name that corresponds to
a worksheet name and then use that in a formula. Does anyone know how to do
this?
