Multiple Searchable Drop Lists - problem - macro using offset to create list for dropdown menu won't show all menu items in data validation -

(not sure how to upload my worksheet to this site - please advise)

this is the 'active cell' where you enter the search string and the offset macro should return the DV list
DV List=SWRN.VNDR.LKUP
this is the formula that creates the list from the VNDR.SEARCH codes in col. A
=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(ROWS($G$6:G6),$A$6:$B$854,2,FALSE),"")
this is the NamedRange formula that creates the dropdown menu
SWRN.VNDR.LKUP =@OFFSET($G$6,0,0,COUNTIF($G$6:$G$854,"?*"),1)

EXAMPLE: when you enter "able" in C2 (the active cell with data validation), the menu dropdown list is created BUT then menu button in C2 doesn't work.
