    Finding and using last line number in an equation.

    Hi,

    I have a table that grows as new information is added. On this table I run various calculations and pivot tables.

    Other than saying Column A:A is there any way to have a range from A2:A(last line number) in my equations, where the last line number is the length of the table.

    Re: Finding and using last line number in an equation.

    Perhaps:

    A2:INDEX(A:A,MATCH(1E300,A:A))

    1E300 (Excel displays 1E+300) is any "large number", greater than any reasonable number in the column.

    I like 1E300 or 1E100 because they are easy to remember.

    -----

    Some people insist on using 9.99999999999999E307, incorrectly stating that that is the "largest possible" number.

    That is indeed the largest constant that we can enter manually. But it is not the largest value that can be calculated.

    So there is really little point in trying to remember such as arcane number, unless you truly expect people to manually enter values in that numerical range.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply.

    I had found that bit of code searching on-line. I was hopeful there was a built in command I had not found, it feels like MS has missed a trick here.
