    Question Find Last Status in Range

    Hi,

    I have column L39:L43 with various statuses, such as:

    IP = In Progress
    NS = Not Started
    TC = Task Completed
    TBD = To Be Determined

    In Cell 38, I would like a function that will either put "IP" if subtasks are in progress or if the "last" subtask is "TC", then put "TC"

    Currently, I have:

    =IF(L39="","",IF(L43<>$B$19,"IP",IF(L43=$B$19,$B$19)))

    Problem with this that my last cell may vary because I have 5 subtasks & I may not need all of them.

    How can I modify this function to find the last "TC" in the range of cells?

    Thanks

    try a solution for the cell 38

    =IF(LOOKUP(REPT("z",255),L39:L43) ="TC","TC","IP")

    Suggest you upload a sample workbook (no sensitive data) that shows the desired results and which contains an explanation of your requirements. A more precise solution can be given.

    it is easy to understand,
    LOOKUP(REPT("z",255),L39:L43)

    To get the value of the last cell in the range that (the cell) is not empty
