I don't believe that. As written, you have a height of -14. But
height must positive.
You are, of course, correct according to the documentation.
However, and I think this goes back at least to XL98, the OFFSET function has been accepting negative values for both height and width; and the result has been to affect the direction for determining the height or width.
In addition, just to show how MS handles this, there are Knowledge Base articles indicating that this behavior is incorrect! So, although useful, it may not be supported in the future.
Negative values for height and width seem to work OK in XL 2007 SP1 also.
Perusing some MSKB articles, I see this issue applies as far back as Excel 5.0 !!
I don't know if it is present in Excel 2010.
