OFFSET
Returns a modified reference, given a reference, an offset, and a desired size.
Syntax:
OFFSET(reference; row_offset; col_offset; new_height; new_width)
- reference is the given reference, which may be a range.
- row_offset and col_offset are the number of rows / columns to move reference down / right by. Negative numbers are allowed.
- new_height and new_width set the height and width of the new reference, by adjusting the bottom right corner. These are optional parameters.
Example:
=OFFSET(A1; 1; 2)
- in a cell, returns the contents of cell C2. The new_height and new_width parameters have been omitted.
=OFFSET(B3; -2; 0; 1; 1)
- in a cell, returns the contents of cell B1. A negative offset is allowed.
=SUM(OFFSET(A1; 2; 2; 2; 3))
- in a cell, returns the sum of the contents of cells C3:E4. 2 rows and 2 columns are added to A1 to offset it to C3, and then the new size extends the range to E4.
=SUM(OFFSET(C1:G1; 0; 0; 1; 3))
- in a cell, returns the sum of the contents of cells C1:E1.
Issues:
- The new_height parameter cannot be empty. Issue 3879 addresses this (target OOo3.0).
- OFFSET(A1;{0|1};0;1;1) in an array formula returns unexpected results; see issue 86658.
