I have a named range called "findIt" that i use in a validation list referencing the following formula

=OFFSET(myLists!$B$1,MATCH(myLists!C12,myLists!$A:$A,0)-2,0,COUNTIF(myLists!$A:$A,myLists!C12)-1,1)

which works perfectly at reference the cell to the left (C12) when I use this for a dropdown list in D12 on the myLists sheet

BUT

I don't want it limited to the myLists Sheet
I can create one of these for each relevant tab, but I would rather just have one work if possible... my ultimate goal is this...
=OFFSET(myLists!$B$1,MATCH(C12,myLists!$A:$A,0)-2,0,COUNTIF(myLists!$A:$A,C12)-1,1)
instead of this...
=OFFSET(myLists!$B$1,MATCH(myLists!C12,myLists!$A:$A,0)-2,0,COUNTIF(myLists!$A:$A,myLists!C12)-1,1)

Anyone know a trick to be a truly relative cell reference, regardless of which sheet?

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

I just changed my scope from document to sheets, to proceed, so that will solve my problem, but if someone has a shiny solution I am all ears.
