# CALC: How to lookup a formula instead of a value

Hi guys

I'm aware of this: https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questi...

But I need to lookup the formula in a table like this:

```
=VLOOKUP(A5,Sheet1.$A$3:$C$183,2,1)
```

Is there a way of doing something as `= FORMULA(VLOOKUP(A5,Sheet1.$A$3:$C$183,2,1))`

?

EDITED:

This piece of information is due to the answer of Lupp (thanks anyway!). In my university, there is a process to you earn points as a professor, but the activities have several different ways of being calculated.

Examples (all fake ones):

- Give class --- 0.5 point per hour per student (Formula = 0.5 * hour * student)
- Write a paper --- 150 points (Formula = 150)
- Being a coordinator --- 30 points per month (Formula = 30 * month)

And I need to select which ones I did in the last period, as well as calculate how many points do I have. I can select either none, one or more times each item (e.g., I could give 3 classes and be coordinator of two different fields).
