    Hi, I have a very specific question
    I have a cell referencing to

    ='404 Select'!E70

    I want to use a global formula to point for others cells in a logical manner. I get the equation

    ='404 Select'!E((this row number-9)/5*61)+70

    How can I make Excel understand that, if possible at all?

    Such as:

    =INDIRECT("'404 Select'!E"&ROW()-9)/5*61+70

    or

    =INDIRECT("'404 Select'!E"&ROW()-9/5*61+70)

    ? You will need to to test for row reference validity, since row numbers less than one are invalid, and must be integers (no fractions).

    Thanks, the second one worked perfectly. You've saved me at least 12 hours of number crunching =)
