OFFSET problems in dynamic range

I'm having the strangest problem with the OFFSET function.

I have 5 dynamic ranges in my worksheet.

=OFFSET('Weekly ORF'!$F$4,1,0,COUNTA('Weekly ORF'$F:$F)-1,1)
=OFFSET ('Weekly ORF'!$D$4,1,0,COUNTA('Weekly ORF'$E:$E)-1,1)
=OFFSET ('Weekly ORF'!$G$4,1,0,COUNTA('Weekly ORF'$G:$G)-1,1)
=OFFSET ('Weekly ORF'!Aimline,0,-1)
=OFFSET ('Weekly ORF'!WCPM,0,-1)

The problem is that the two names for Date and Date2 keep reverting to
=OFFSET ('Excel Template.xls'!Aimline,0,-1) and
=OFFSET ('Excel Template.xls'!WCPM,0,-1)
Which consequently prevents me from being able to adjust the SERIES in
the associated chart.

Does anyone know why this is doing this and how I can stop it? Thanks,

>=OFFSET ('Weekly ORF'!$G$4,1,0,COUNTA('Weekly ORF'$G:$G)-1,1)

You're missing ! between 'Weekly ORF' and the range/columns addresses
in the COUNTA calls, which DOES throw syntax errors, so these can't be
the actual formulas you're using. Are these only missing the !s?

>=OFFSET ('Weekly ORF'!Aimline,0,-1)
>=OFFSET ('Weekly ORF'!WCPM,0,-1)

Are Aimline and WCPM defined as worksheet-level names rather than
workbook-level names? If not, that's your problem.

Oops, I actually mistyped it for this email, but it does have the !s in
the formula itself.

Are Aimline and WCPM defined as worksheet-level names rather than
workbook-level names?

How do I define these as worksheet-level vs. workbook level?

Thank you, cabybake

Names may be defined at workbook-level (default) or worksheet-level. If
you highlight the range B2:E5 in the worksheet named foo, then run
Insert > Name > Define and enter just


as the name, then bar will be a workbook-level name. On the other hand,
if you enter the name as


then bar will be a worksheet-level name which you may refer to just as
bar in the foo worksheet, but as foo!bar in other worksheets.

If you run Insert > Name > Define, do the lines containing Aimline or
WCPM in the name list show the worksheet names on the right hand side
of the line? If not, they're workbook-level names. If they're
workbook-level names, then you shouldn't precede then with worksheet

So, what happens when you change the definitions of Date and Date2 to

=OFFSET (Aimline,0,-1)

Comments problem
I've created a number of comments. When I position the comments where I want them, they only reflect their positions on "Show" or "Edit" comment. All the comments default to the same relationship to the cells when you pass over them. This is a problem because I've also used data vaildation (with lists) on these cells and you can't display the comment with the list pulled down at the same time because the comments are tool close to the validated cell. Thanks in adavance. The comment usually appears to the right of the cell, and should still allow you to see t...

Printing problem from Excel 2007
Greetings, I am having an issue with printing from Excel 2007. Many users when printing from Excel with get several pages of non-sensical "junk" printed out on the pages. If it actually prints what is on the page, none of the items are in the cells, but look like they are just randomly thrown about the page. I have found that this most often is related to the Calibri font somehow, because I instruct them to change the font to Arial and all prints fine. That being said, if the user converts the Excel sheet into a PDF and print, it prints perfect. This is a great workaround, but kind ...
