    Dynamic Dependant Dropdown Error

    Hi All,

    First time poster, long time reader. I have been having an issue with a formula I am inputting into the data validation widget to create a dynamic dependant dropdown error. The formula is as follows:

    =OFFSET(Setup[[#Headers],[Savings]],1,MATCH([@[Expense Category]],Setup[[#Headers],[Savings]:[Miscellaneous]],0)-1,COUNTA(OFFSET(Setup[[#Headers],[Savings]],1,MATCH([@[Expense Category]],Setup[[#Headers],[Savings]:[Miscellaneous]],0)-1,20,1)),1)

    When the formula is put into the "Data Validation" widget, it returns the "There's a problem with this formula" error.

    Normally this would make sense and indicate that there was an error with the formula, but when I put the formula directly into the cell to test it, I can see the results. Although, admittedly, the results return a "#VALUE!". However, when i select the formula in the cell and press F9, it returns the desired result.

    I have attached both the workbook (the tab in question is "Expense Input" but it references the tab named "Setup".

    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
