Default Using the results from two seperate cells to create cell reference


I want to be able to obtain the value of a cell in another worksheet,
however I want to be able to name that cell by using the results from 3
other formula's.

In other words on my main sheet one formula would result in the
worksheets name, another will refer to the column ref and another will
refer to the row ref. I can get these results but I cant seem to then
type a formula to retrive the data from the resultant cell ref

eg 3 formulas result in
a5 = sheet 3
a6 = C
A7 = 6

then cell d1 needs to show the value of cell C6 in worksheet 3

It sounds possible but i just cant work it out

Thanks
