Excel: Data filtering using formulas > Openoffice formula does not work in excel

Hello all, I have used Openoffice Calc to make some reports. Now the company gave me excel to work with which i was excited about. The problem is that some of my OO (OpenOffice) formulas don't do the trick anymore, and i'm not that great in formula debugging so thats why i turn to your expertise [IMG]https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/m6zm3T_qaCifw-3rTfxmrKR7MZyKP3nQ7a8Bma0ZliUtYqJ_XqHjoT8_76BR_066oh3gpSrxaUUf4NujW2NjDYplCgIZ7WqfbRWpAwhTKT-w-pYve5dFI58PSeRxcmViTA[/IMG] The following issue occurs:

1 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O
2 Total contacts 0 Filtered Total contacts 0 Filtered
3 Telephone in 4.545 12 TRUE #N/A Telephone in 4.545 12 TRUE 1 Telephone in 4545
4 Work Order 2.128 FALSE Work Order 2.128 FALSE 3 Internet 1259
5 Internet 1.259 TRUE Internet 1.259 TRUE 4 Chat 721
6 Chat 721 TRUE Chat 721 TRUE 5 E-mail 532
7 E-mail 532 TRUE E-mail 532 TRUE 9 Letter in 2
8 E-mail out 238 FALSE E-mail out 238 FALSE #N/A
9 Letter out 71 FALSE Letter out 71 FALSE #N/A
10 Telephone out 26 FALSE Telephone out 26 FALSE #N/A
11 Letter in 2 TRUE Letter in 2 TRUE #N/A
12 0 0 FALSE 0 0 FALSE #N/A
13 0 0 FALSE 0 0 FALSE #N/A
14 0 0 FALSE 0 0 FALSE #N/A
I extract data with two columns, Subject (A column) and Count (B column). I filter the subject and use: =OR(A3="Telephone in"; A3="Chat"; A3="Internet"; A3="E-Mail"; A3="Letter in") in D3. This gives met the TRUE or FALSE values. In E2 i used: =E2+MATCH(1;OFFSET($D$3;E2;0;$C$3-E2;1);0)where F2 is zero value. This returned the position of each TRUE value in the D column. After this i just need to copy the INDEX from the corresponding TRUE values into G column using: =IF(ISERROR(E3);"";INDEX(A$3:A$14;E3)). Sothe problem here is the =E2+MATCH(1;OFFSET($E$3;E2;0;$D$3-E2;1);0) formula. Does anyone know what goes wrong here?? The I to O columns is what shows when working. Hope someone can help me out here.
