Folks,
The attached spreadsheet "Men" tab has three sections:
Category
Topic
Description

When I select the first Category, "Column" I an getting the correct Topic and Description.
However (and I have only done one in the second Category, "Line" with one Topic and Description) I am not getting the correct information and I am stuck. The information I am getting is coming from the second column in the worksheet "Topics" and not from the 3rd column.  
I'm sure that the when the problem is identified lights will go off once again.

Your name definition for List

=OFFSET(Topics!$B$1,0,0,COUNTA(Topics!$B:$B)+1,1)

should be on column C:

=OFFSET(Topics!$C$1,0,0,COUNTA(Topics!$C:$C)+1,1)
