I have a competition entry form for an association I belong to that I'd like to add two drop down menus to so that entrants can select their club name and associated team names for that club.

In a worksheet behind the form I have a list of clubs in column "B" ("A" has the ID number in it as the table is from Access - don't ask!!) and the names of teams associated with that club going across the sheet beside the club name in individual Name Ranges. (Up to 30 Team names in Dynamic lists
On the form I have managed to make the first drop down so the club can select its name from a list by using Data Validation and referring to the Range Name (ClubLink - =OFFSET(TeamsTest!$B$2,0,0,COUNTA(TeamsTest!$B$2:$B$200),1)).
I have tried using an INDIRECT command to create a second drop down which will display only the team names associated with the Club selected in the first drop down, but can't get it to do anything - no drop down appears when you click on the drop down arrow at the side of the cell
The data Validation for the Team Name drop down is =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE($C$12," ","")) where C12 is the Club Name cell.
Why I can't get the Team Name cell to show the names listed beside the Club selected in C12?
