If you specify a start cell, you must specify an end cell too:

=Category!$E$2:$E$65536 for example.

Or for a more dynamic range:
=Category!$E$2:INDEX(Category!$E:$E,COUNTA(Category!$E:$E))

Instead of
$E:$E
try
E2:E65536

Keep your named range as is (i.e. $E:$E) and try using the following formula for custom ranges.
Assuming that TEST is the name of you range,
For the list of data that starts from row 10
=OFFSET(TEST,9,0,COUNT(TEST)-9,1)

Open in new window


For the list of data that starts from row 2
=OFFSET(TEST,1,0,COUNT(TEST)-1,1)

Open in new window
