#### ? offset('activecell',,-2,1,1) in Named Formula ?

```I have a cell formula as part of a WorkSheet for explaining stats
=prob_T^(A9) * (1-prob_T)^(n-A9)

I would prefer to use a Name, k, in place of the A9 relative
reference, as this would align the WorkSheet with standard stats names
& make explanations easier to understand.

This name needs return a reference to the cell at at columnoffset(-2)
relative to the cell the Name is used in ... the syntax I've used in
the subject line is as close as I've got so far ...

?? is this something that can be made to work?

```You can define k as:
=INDIRECT(RC[-2],FALSE)
or if you only use it on one sheet, then select cell C1 and define k
as:
=A1

```Hello Matthew,

click on A9
click on the left hand side of the formula bar: fx
type in : k

You can now use k instead of A9.

Best Regards,

Gabor Sebo

Vlookup and offset
Hi, I would like to lookup a users ID in a table and check if they have a paticular qualification, a normal VLOOKUP will do that but then I would like to refer to a date in the header to see when they gained the qualification so the cell can determine whether they are qualified based on the current date. I could do this without checking the date but that would disguise the lack of skills for the rest of the past records as soon as the skill was recorded. I think I need to combine an IF, VLOOKUP and an OFFSET but am at a loss as to how to put it all together. Hope someone can help. ...
