Hi,

I was looking for help with the following offset question, thanks for any help:

 

Using the current offset formulas:

cell reference  A20 = 1, B20= 3, C20= 7, D20= 9, E20=14, F20= 15 

 

OFFSET(A20,0,4,1,1)  Result - 14

SUM(OFFSET(A20,0,4,1,2)) Result - 29

Question

is there away to have the width give the value instead of summing, ( The value returned would be E20 & F20) Result 14 15

Any idea if this can be done, or is the question not clear?  thanks

Solution

Hi,

 

There is an easy solution using TEXTJOIN function as follows:

=TEXTJOIN(", ",TRUE,OFFSET(A20,0,4,1,2))

But, please note that the TEXTJOIN is only available in Excel 2019 or Office 365

If you have an earlier version of Excel, you will not see this function!

 

For earlier versions of Excel, I would suggest this workaround using INDEX and concatenation operator:

=INDEX(OFFSET(A20,0,4,1,2),1)&", "&INDEX(OFFSET(A20,0,4,1,2),2)

Hope that helps
