Use the first formula. It is not affected by any data in row 1

=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2,ROW()-1,,,"Sheet 2"))

This is your formula,
if the ROW number is different than in my sample will I need to change something?
The information on sheet 2 will start at E7
and be put in C5

What am I missing?

2 is the row number. You can change it to any other number. Change the 1 in row()-1 to modify the column.

If your data starts in E7 then use

=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(7,ROW()+3,,,"Sheet 2"))

You can make life simpler by using

=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(ROW('Sheet 2'!$E$7),ROW()+COLUMN('Sheet 2'!$E$7)-2,,,"Sheet 2"))

and only changing the two $E$7 to whatever your first cell is.
