    offset/dynamic chart

    Hi all,

    I have set up a named range as such: (name = "blah1")
    =OFFSET('F_5050 FP'!D1223,'F_5050 FP'!$B$2-1,0,'F_5050 FP'!$H$1,1)

    And it works, it selects the right range of values (a column of numbers).

    Then I create a new line chart, edit series, set series values to:
    ='F_5050 FP'!blah1

    (which is a range, right, so should work?)

    And I just get "a formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references"

    Thanks in advance

    I guess we'd need to know what was in the cells and and how they are structured.

    An thoughts on how you might do that?

    Hello,

    the offset formula contains a relative reference (the first one). This means that when the formula is evaluated, it will be relative to the current cursor position.

    Try making all references in the Offset formula absolute.

    =OFFSET('F_5050 FP'!$D$1223,'F_5050 FP'!$B$2-1,0,'F_5050 FP'!$H$1,1)

    It was as simple as that - the relative reference. Thanks so much!
