I'm not clear on your requirement - it seems that you want a formula in C2:C5 in sheet2, what results do you expect for your example?

Well, I'm taking a guess since the question is vague and the sample data lacking.

See attached.

Sorry for the confusion, this what I need - the column C in the attached spreadsheet, I need the values of A in sheet1 based on B, the value of B is nothing but the cell n umber belongs to A. For eg in the column B3, the value 3 reflects the cell number A 3 in sheet 1, the output in column should be corresponding value of A3 which is 22 and so forth. I have attached the spreadsheet.

To show NA for blank cells as well as cells with 0 use:

   =IF(OR(A2=0,A2=""),NA(),INDEX(Sheet1!A:A,A2))
