Read across this article about Index. Index culd returns either the value or reference to a value from a table or range

Why the first example return a value while the other example returns a reference ? Any idea ?


=Index(A1:D5,2,3)    return $3.5  -> a value
=Index(A1:D5,2,3)    return reference to a cell.
