Excel: Error with index match function

Hey all! My code looks up a user input value and returns a value from a different column a row below. This works great when I use VLookup until I realized I couldn't use the OFFSET function in VBA. So after looking through the forums, I switched to using INDEX-MATCH combination, which throws me a Error 1004, unable to find Index property. VLookup:

CableSizeTable = Worksheets(WorksheetName).Range(Worksheets(WorksheetName).Cells(10, Column), Worksheets(WorksheetName).Cells(26,78))
CableColumn = 79-Column
CableSize = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(Val(LoadCurrentText), CableSizeTable, CableColumn)

CableColumn = Columns(1)
ConductorRow = Worksheets(WorksheetName).Range(Worksheets(WorksheetName).Cells(10, Column), Worksheets(WorksheetName).Cells(26, Column))
j = 1
CableSize = WorksheetFunction.Index(CableColumn, WorksheetFunction.Match(Val(LoadCurrentText), ConductorRow, 1), -j).Value
I've tried changing

CableColumn = Columns(1)
CableColumn = Range(Columns(1))
CableColumn = Range("A:A")
but there's no difference. Thanks in advance!
