Can someone give me a function to use so that the cell at the bottom of a
column equals the last nonblank cell above in that column?

There are formulas in the cells above. The formulas results in a number
based upon the "If" condition in the formulas, else it returns a blank value in the cell. Here is a sample of one of the formulas in a cell in the column above... =IF(AND(W16<"",(COUNTA($W$3:W15)0)(COUNTBLANK($W$3:W15)),(COUNTA($W17:W$22)=0)COUNTBLANK($W17:W$22)),$F16,"") "T.

This will return the *last numeric value* in the range:
=IF(COUNT(A1:A10),LOOKUP(1E100,A1:A10),"")  Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "Vicky" wrote in message ... There are formulas in the cells above.

Thank you so much! This worked. I have yet to understand how LOOKUP works.
Maybe in time I will. :) "T. Valko" wrote: This will return the *last numeric value* in the range: =IF(COUNT(A1:A10),LOOKUP(1E100,A1:A10),"")  Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "Vicky" wrote in message ...

You're welcome. Thanks for the feedback!
How LOOKUP works: The way that LOOKUP works is if the lookup_value is greater than all the values in the lookup_vector it will match the *last* value in the lookup_vector that is less than the lookup_value. To ensure that the lookup_value is greater than all the values in the lookup_vector we use an arbitrary number that is guaranteed to meet this condition. In this case the lookup_value is 1E100, 1 followed by 100 zeros. There's a pretty good chance that no number in your range will be greater than that so the formula returns the *last numeric* value in the range.
