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)
=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?

The =SQRT(25) is a square root. For a cube root, use =125^(1/3). For a fourth root, use =625^(1/4).

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.

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
