VBA include variable in vlookup

I am having trouble including the variable    ratesh1
The code is long, but it is a repeat of
VLOOKUP(1,""IE_EX_MIN_""&ratesh1,$L2,FALSE)

I have tried with INDIRECT and not.
I get #NAME?

Can anyone help?

Sub Calc_New_Rates()
#If VBA7 And Win64 Then
    Dim lngLastRowD As Longlong
    Dim ratesh1 As String
    Dim ratesh2 As String
#Else
    Dim lngLastRowD As Long
    Dim ratesh1 As String
    Dim ratesh2 As String
#End If

Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
   Application.ScreenUpdating = False
With Sheets("Detail")
   ratesh1 = Sheets("Selection").Range("B11")
   ratesh2 = Sheets("Selection").Range("B12")
lngLastRowD = Sheets("Detail").Range("A800000").End(xlUp).Row

.Range("X2:X" & lngLastRowD).Formula = "=IF(OR($A2={""FO"",""PO"",""SO"",""E2AM"",""E2"",""ESP""}),VLOOKUP($P2,'Dom Ex'!$A$3:$AP$2000,40,FALSE)," & _

ProfessorJimJamMicrosoft Excel ExpertCommented:
you need to create a named range and then use it in formula.

instead of
 ratesh1 = Sheets("Selection").Range("B11")
   ratesh2 = Sheets("Selection").Range("B12")


use this code to create named ranges
 ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="ratesh2", RefersToR1C1:="=Selection!R12C3"
    ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="ratesh1", RefersToR1C1:="=Selection!R11C3"

you cannot use defined variable name inside formula.
NorieAnalyst Assistant Commented:
Do you want the values from Selection!B11 and B12 in the formula?

Also, are IP_EX_PR_L_, IP_EX_PR_, IP_EX_MIN_ etc the prefixes for named ranges?

please see attached file and run the macro. it will work.

@Norie
Yes, the name would be IP_EX_PR_L_2014  or IP_EX_PR_L_2015 or  IP_EX_PR_L_2016
The IP_EX_PR_L_ is the prefix.

Can you post an example of a working formula?

This will compile but I'm not sure it will produce the correct formula.

In particular I'm concerned about this part.
""DOM_""&$A2&""_MIN_" & ratesh1

Open in new window

Which named range are you trying to refer to there and where does A2 come into things?
