Retrieving Values from another Sheet Using Date as Sheet Name Reference

Problem:

The dates entered in column A (“mmm-yy”) refer to sheets with corresponding names (mmyy).
We want to create a formula to retrieve value in cell A1 from a sheet referred to by each of the dates in column A.

Solution:

Use the INDIRECT and TEXT functions as shown in the following formula:
=INDIRECT(TEXT(A2,”mmyy”)&”‘!A1″)
