I have the following formula:
=INT((INDEX('Evaluation - Level 2'!$G$5:$G$69,1,1))*100)&"%"

It works as expected. However, I need that same formula to work with 50 cells. Example, the next cell will be:
=INT((INDEX('Evaluation - Level 2'!$H$5:$H$69,1,1))*100)&"%"

The only aspect that changed is that the G became an H.

I do not want to copy/paste/update each cell. I would like to add a column with the values G, H, I, J, etc and pull from that column to update the formula. Please advise. Also, if there is an easier way please suggest.

Why are you using INDEX?

As far as I can see all it does is return the first value in the range, eg H5, G5 and so on.

How about using OFFSET?

If the formula is going on row 1 you could try this and copy down.

=INT((OFFSET('Evaluation - Level 2'!$G$5,0,ROW()-1))*100)&"%"

If it's not row 1 just change ROW()-1 to ROW()-X, where X is the row the first formula is going in.
