Use a positive number for expansion and a negative number for contraction. If you look at the syntax of the formula, we simply took cell C1 and expanded it down 5 rows all the way upto cell C5.
It will return the header row of the Table, which we’ll use in the next step. Create Category Defined Name " data-medium-file=" data-large-file=" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-8023" title="Create Category Defined Name" src=" alt="Create Category Defined Name" width="297" height="221" / Data Validation…

The syntax for the Offset function in excel is: OFFSET(range, rows, columns, height, width ) is the number of columns by which to offset to the range.
Let us assume that a range of cells in ‘Sheet3’, staring from cell C1 and upto cell C5, contains the values that we would like to use in the drop down. A named range is a group of cells that have been assigned a specific name.
