Default #Ref! after row deletion

How can one stop the #Ref! from appearing after deleting row from above? Exam:
Col A = Date field
Col B = Data field
Col C = Reference from Col B, formula = if(A2="",C1,B2) Etc. to row 10.
Row C11 contains formula =C10

delete rows 3,4,5 leaves row 11, now row 8 with #Ref!

What kind of formula can stop the #Ref!

Default #Ref! after row deletion

One option is to use Indirect to refer to the previous row, as in:
=Indirect("A"&row()-1)

Fred

A date field cannot return 1901/01/00. If the number 0 is formatted as a
date, then you will see 1900/01/00. If you want blank instead, you will have
to modify your formula in the same way, as in:

=if(indirect("A"&row()-1)="","",indirect("A"&row()-2))

Fred
