    Question Offset

    anyone have an experience with offset returning a wrong data type error when increasing the height above 1?

    =OFFSET(A1,0,0,1,1) works just fine.
    =OFFSET(A1,0,0,2,1) produces wrong data type.

    Starting with a different reference doesn't seem to make a difference.

    This instruction returns 2 values, cells A1 and A2. You can only put one value in the cell, so the error.
    =OFFSET(A1,0,0,2,1)
    produces wrong data type.

    Starting with a different reference doesn't seem to make a difference.
    An example to use height:

     ABC
    15  
    28 13

    CellFormula
    C2=SUM(OFFSET(A1,0,0,2,1))


    With the height you get 2 cells A1 and A2.

    HI
    let say F5=OFFSET(A1,0,0,1,1) this means offset to one cell only witch is ok (F5=B2)
    But F5=
    OFFSET(A1,0,0,2,1) try to allocate more than one cell(or rather range of cells) value to one cell "can't be"
    See what
