Set parameter equal to a specific value in a table

I have a data source in Excel where the title of the file changes daily. I have a separate table (Table1) that has the name of the new name of the file. How can i set a parameter to a single value within a table? 

 

Say for example the parameter must be set to the 2nd column, 4th row of Table1

Re: Set parameter equal to a specific value in a table

Hi @joekoshar,

 

Actually, you can use '[]' and '{}' with query table to find out specific cell value.

 

For example: 2nd column, 4th row of Table1

Custom = Table[Column2]{3}
