    Offset function across columns when dragged down rather than rows.

    Hi all,

    I have a source document which gets data added across columns but always in the same row, i.e. B4 on Monday and then C4 on Tuesday. However, I have another page which needs to display this same data but down columns, so Monday will be b4, and Tuesday B5.

    So far I have tried multiple versions of the formula below, I can't get it to go across columns when dragged down rows on the display page. It does however update if I pull it across columns.

    =OFFSET(Sheet1!B$4,0,0,ROW()-4)

    Cheers.

    What cell are you entering the formula in?

    I am entering the formula in to Cell A1 of Sheet 2, and I am attempting to drag it down to cell A2 etc.

    Try this...

    =INDEX(Sheet1!B$4:F$4,ROWS(A$1:A1))

    Adjust for the correct end of range where I use F4.

    Try

    =OFFSET(Sheet1!$B$4,0,ROWS(A$1:A1)-1)
