Hi,

I ran into a small problem. This must be done via formulas as other options are limited.

How do I retrive the contents of the cells using the cell's row and column number only?

Eg;

I know the cell is in column 5, row 52. How can I write a formula to retrive the contents inside this cell? (E52)?

Thanks
