Named Ranges

Posted on 2011-10-05

I was reading to learn excel 2007 Named Ranges. It says,

"5:Expand Down Based on Another Cell Value
    Put the number 10 in cell B1 first then:
In the Refers to box type: =OFFSET($A$1,0,0,$B$1,1)
Now change the number in cell B1 and the range will change accordingly".

I can't get this to work. I want the Named Range to select cells in column A where there is a value in Column B.

Can anybody help?
