complete a formula in sheet2. The data are transfered to sheet2 and the formula in sheet2 getting the parameter
from sheet2 to complete. Now i like to switch in Sheet2 from which line i'm getting the parameter in sheet1.
There are 9 different lines with parameter.

Thank you but not resolve my problem.  The parameter in sheet1 are changed by customer. For example he likes
to order 9 different Shared mailboxes and he's filling 9 different parameters lines in sheet1. Sheet2 is hidden for him.
Normally to create a shared Mailbox i've 7 lines with different formulas filled with customer parameter and other
parameter which are always the same.
Now i just want to change the complete customer parameter tree in sheet2 with one click :)
1.Customer Parameter Line 1  - Create shared mailbox then switch to Parameter given in line 2
2.Customer Parameter Line 2 - Create shared mailbox  then switch to Parameter given in line 3
I can do it with nine times having the complete formulas with different parameters in sheet2
but i want only one time the formulas with parameter in sheet2 and switching only the parameter
