=OFFSET('D2 Data'!$DW$2,0,0,COUNT('D2 Data'!$DW:$DW),8)

I have this offset formula, but its returning a ref error

Can anyone see why?

Thanks
Seamus

Hello Seamus,

You might get #REF! error if the COUNT formula resolves to zero

What do you get if you put this formula in a cell on the worksheet?

=COUNT('D2 Data'!$DW:$DW)

COUNT only counts numbers - if the data in column DW is text then use COUNTA instead (that counts text and numbers)

regards, barry
