Referencing column headers as a list in another column

Posted on 2012-08-14

Is there a formula I can use to reference many column headers in order to create them as a list on another sheet, making sure the list reflects any changes the headers might undergo?

I do not want to copy/paste special/transpose and just using the = sign to go and grab the cell reference itself is a bit tedious.  

Attached is a mock up that I hope will help illustrate the problem.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Many thanks.

    Assuming you know that headers will start at E5 then try this formula in B9 copied down as far as might be required
