    =filter(original!A:E,original!E:E="Complete") In reference to this formulat, how would I reference the "original" sheet and the "complete" phrases indirectly? like I want to filter all the times the value in A1 is referenced in the sheet named in A2? Is that possible? That was I can just change the value in A1 to search for a different word or change the value in A2 to search in a different sheet.
