    Need a formula to return the last (i.e. lowest row) value entered into a table

    I have a table with twelve rows in it. The user can enter numbers into any or all of the rows in the table, and would be expected to enter the figures in a group of rows next to each other e.g.

    Row 1 - 316
    Row 2 - 274
    Row 3 - 352

    would return 352

    or

    Row 6 - 310
    Row 7 - 220
    Row 8 - 265

    would return 265

    I can use nested IF statements to work my way up the table from the bottom until I find a figure more than zero, but I can only use 7 nested IF statements. Is there another way I can do this?

    Hi ianpwilliams,

    Use below formula to fetch last value entered in column a:-

    =OFFSET($A$1,COUNTA(A:A)-1,0)

    Try

    =LOOKUP(9.999999999E+307,A1:A12)

    Hi ianpwilliams

    Assuming your data table of 12 rows is in A1:A12, try the following.
