Function similar to Excel INDIRECT

Would you help me?
I am using in the text function of a gallery the value "Gallery1.Selected." & ThisItem.ID and it shows "Gallery1.Selected.0001". I wanted to bring the value of 0001, not the text.
Is there any function for this?
Thank you

Maybe I am not understanding the question but why wouldn't you use just ThisItem.ID if all you want is the ID to show?

Re: Function similar to Excel INDIRECT

Hi Jeff,
Thank you for helping me!
I need to bring the value of "Gallery1.Selected.0001", but I'm in another gallery.
I also tried using Lookup, but when I say that the column is "ThisItem.ID", it does not bring the value but the ID.
Please see the attachments as an example:
LookUp (Emp_Training, Position_ID = Gallery1.Selected.Position_ID, T0001) ---> OK
LookUp (Emp_Training, Position_ID = Gallery1.Selected.Position_ID, ThisItem.ID) ---> ID Value - Not Ok
