What I want to do here does work if this is entered into a name as reference to: so that is not an answer I am looking for.

I am looking for an answer that can do maths on 2 x 99 array constants entered in single cells.

Tried with INDIRECT, I'm sure there's something I am forgetting here, to do with being able to make formulae construct themselves.

Here's the typing:
{5,4,3,2,3,4,5;1,2,3,4,5,6,7}
=CONCATENATE("=SUM(INDEX(",A1,",,2))")

and the result of the concatenate (which does work in itself)
=SUM(INDEX({5,4,3,2,3,4,5;1,2,3,4,5,6,7},,2))

How to get that array constant indirectly into the formula?
