```Hi, i need a macro to look in sheet 2 column A and look at the last filled
cell. In the  last filled cell i have a number. When i run macro, i need to
generate (in sheet1 A1) the number from the last filled cell +1.

EX:
sheet 2 last filled cell = 29

When competing hypotheses are otherwise equal, adopt the hypothesis that
introduces the fewest assumptions while still sufficiently answering the
question.

Sub Sonic()
Dim LastRow As Long
Set SrcSht = Sheets("Sheet2")
Set DstSht = Sheets("Sheet1")
LastRow = SrcSht.Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

+1 should be added at the end of the last statement like this:

DstSht.Range("A1").Value = SrcSht.Range("A" & LastRow) + 1

Chart to represent sale number by individual contrubtion vs total
I need help on how to create a chart to represent sales number by individual contributor vs total. E.g.
