Hi all,

I have a problem I'm hoping someone can help me with.

I have a workbook with multiple sheets, some of which reference data
from other sheets in the workbook.

I have one 'Main' sheet, that lists our Sales Reps, and has each ones
monthly numbers, by column, ie:

1  Name  Jan  Feb  ...  Dec  YTD
2  Rep1  ###  ###  ###  ###  ###
3  Rep2  ###  ###  ###  ###  ###

I have other sheets that have these Reps broken down by Team, and
pulling each Reps numbers from the Main sheet.

The problem is, I need to be able to sort the Main Sheet by the Sum
column (to show the top Sales Rep), but when I do that, since the
references on the Team sheets still reference the same Col/Row, the
numbers are now wrong.

Googling reveals this is apparently by design, as the Rows themselves
aren't changing.

So, I was think if I could reference it instead of by Row#, by the
content of A# - ie, instead of:

'Main.A2' for the Jan numbers for Rep1, something like:


Is this possible? I really want to keep this as simple as possible, and
would very much prefer to avoid having to script anything...

Thanks for any suggestions or pointers...


This seems to be a bug.

The reference to you first sheet (Main.A2) should be to the same cell, even after sorting your data in this first sheet.
