excel do link - How to make a reference to a cell of another sheet, when the sheet name is the value of a cell?

You are looking for the INDIRECT worksheet function:

=COUNTIFS(INDIRECT(A1 & "!$C:$C"); ">=" & $A7)

The function turns a string into a real cell reference.

In excel 2007, I have a formula in a cell like the following:


Now I want to make the name of the sheet ('2008-10-31') be dependent on the value of some cell (say A1). Something like:

=COUNTIFS(A1!$C:$C;">="&'$A7) // error

Is there is way to do this? Or do I have to write a VBA-Macro for it?


=CONCATENATE("A", Sheet1!A1)
