Default INDIRECT.EXT function, PULL function

I need a solution to obtain a range address from a
workbook (both open or closed) to use in the MATCH or
VLOOKUP functions.
Can anyone help,
Thanks in anticipation



Appreciate this is a dormant thread - but just in case someone is monitoring.

I have tried to implement the pull function as per Harlan's most recent update, but notice that while it works for named ranges consisting of a single cell, it fails for multi-cell ranges.

It looks as if r below is returned as NOTHING regardless of whether the range is single or multi-celled. So the first limb of the if statement is executed regardless.

In the case where the range is a single-cell, the ExecuteExcel4Macro returns the value. But in the case of a multi-cell range, it simply falls over. My guess is that it should get to the second limb of the if statement in this case.

Set r = xlwb.Sheets(1).Range(Mid(xref, n + 1))

If r Is Nothing Then
pull = xlapp.ExecuteExcel4Macro(xref)

For Each C In r
C.Value = xlapp.ExecuteExcel4Macro(b & C.Address(1, 1, xlR1C1))
Next C

pull = r.Value

End If

Any thoughts or suggestions greatl appreciated.

Thanks & regards,
