    Last Value

    =INDEX(B2:F2,1,MAX(IF(B2:F2<>"",COLUMN(B2:F2)))-COLUMN(B2)+1)

    I have used the above formula - it is exactly what i want but i am getting a #VALUE result. What have i done wrong?

    I think part of that second formula is missing. But an array formula is not required to find the last value in a range, a normal lookup will do it:

    =LOOKUP(2, 1/(B2:F2<>""), B2:F2)
