Hi,

See attached.
See also my video link which should make things clearer.
It's less than 90 seconds.

I have 3 sheets;
Sheet1 - Detail for rest of workbook

Sheet2 - Summary of Sheet1

Sheet3 - This is my problem one!  It should display a "drilldown" of the active SubCatID chosen in sheet2.  (i.e. it will depend on where the customer places the cursor in sheet 2).

Here is an example:

=INDIRECT("'"&$A9&"'!$A$5")

will pull the value in cell A5 on the sheet named whatever is in this sheet's A9.

Perhaps you can work from this to fit it to your needs.

As for the cursor location, I have never done that, but here is an Excel Help reference page that explains how to do it.

Thanks folks for the response.
Saqib's answer seems very close to what I require.

(I just need to ensure that I understand exactly how it works!),
