#### Finding last row in a column

```Column A contains entries of any formats including blanks.
My objective is to find the last blank row# in Column A, and post it in cell
D1.
Can you help me with a formula to do that? Thanks

```I expect you haven't described your question correctly. The last blank row in
column A is most likely the last row on the worksheet, row 65536.

Do you mean the last *embedded* blank row?

```Hi Daniel,

Try the following array formula...

=MAX(IF(A1:A100="",ROW(A1:A100)))

entered using CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER.

Hope this helps!

It didn't work. Maybe I should give the following example.

```Hi Daniel!

Try this. In cell D1 enter:

="A"&MAX(MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,A:A),MATCH(REPT
("z",255),A:A))+1

This will return A5. If you only want the number 5
remove "A"& from the formula. This also takes into account
cells that may formulas that reurn "".

to be honest the basic concept was 'borrowed' either from Harlan or
Aladin (not sure where I saw it first). I just adapted it to this
specific case and I just like the idea of this non-array-entered

```hi,

i was wondering if there is a way frank's lookup formula would accept
the range dynamically.

i use this sheet wherein the rows are ever burgeoning... some days as
many as 500-1000 lines could be added.

currently i am using vba code to perform this functionality. it would
be of great utility if the same could be done using worksheet
functions.

```Hi
you could always use:
=LOOKUP(2,1/(1-ISBLANK(A1:A60000)),ROW(A1:A16000))+1

or if for example the number of rows is stored in B1 (e.g. 10000) try
(not tested):
=LOOKUP(2,1/(1-ISBLANK(OFFSET(A1,0,0,B1))),ROW(OFFSET(A1,0,0,B1)))+1

```hi frank,

i was trying to figure out if i could use offset in order to make th
formula dynamic. i was not able to, hence i posted my question here.

i used the formula you provided. if i enter the formula in B1 (when th
list is in column A), i get a circular reference error due to th
presence of B1 in the formula and the result is 0. if i enter th
formula in any other column (C, D, E...) i get #REF.

inconvenience?

thanks,

mac

```hi frank,

i just tweaked your formula a wee bit, i am getting closer, but not
there yet.

column A has a,b,,c,d,,e,f,,g,h (from A1 to A11).

that is, A3, A6, A9 are blanks.

i used the following version of your formula in B1:

=LOOKUP(2,1/(1-
ISBLANK(OFFSET(A1,0,0,COUNTA(\$A:\$A)))),ROW(OFFSET(A1,0,0,COUNTA(\$A:\$A))))+1

i got the result as 9. the expected result is 12.

```Hi
of course you get this result as COUNTA only returns the number of
filled cells. To be honest I don't know why you want to make i dynamic
(you won't gain a speed advantage -  at least I dont think so). You why
not simply make the range large enough and use
=LOOKUP(2,1/(1-ISBLANK(A1:A60000)),ROW(A1:A16000))+1

With this you should have no problems

I have a large spreadsheet with several columns hidden. I want to unhide a specific column that I know has a column name of Project Owner. How can I determine which column to unhide to see the desired column without unhiding all of the columns? I tried the find feature, but that did not help. assuming you have your name in row 1 of the column, you could use MATCH or in vba you could use FIND Sub findcol() Columns(Rows(1).Find("yournamehere").Column).Hidden = False End Sub -- Don Guillett SalesAid Software donaldb@281.com "Beachcomber" <Beachcomber@discussions.m...

Is there an advanced find command or some kind of command where I can search through a particular column of dates and go to each row where the date is less than Feb 1, 2005. I thought I could use either the filter command but couldn't use the advanced filter to find dates?? Try an AutoFilter. Specify "Custom" on drop-down and select "is less than" and then the date.

how to find time difference between timestamps to a millisecond?
I have two columns which contain timestamps in the format of yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss:msmsms (the last three digits are the milliseconds). I need to find the difference of the timestamps in ss:msmsms format. I am trying to implement a VB function to do this as there is no predefined function available. Can anyone please assist? Thanks! If you have date/time in exactly that format (ie 05 for fifth month not just 5) then this formula will convert your data to Excel's date/time format =DATE(LEFT(A1,4),MID(A1,6,2),MID(A1,9,2))+TIME(MID(A1,12,2),MID(A1,15,2),MID(A1,18,2))+RIGHT(A1,3)/1000/60/...

I haven't even selected any files from the library TO sync. I'm just trying to set up the sync for my device! It's done that with BOTH of my micro sd cards, and it's VERY aggravating. Please help.

How can I add the "To" column heading to show up in ALL email fold
I have over 500 folders in my Outlook 2003. One for each customer, etc. I desperately need the "to" column to show up as default between the "From" and "Subject" for all my customer folders. This is because there are emails in each customer folder that are sent to various recipients so I need a way to find those fast. Outlook seems to omit this "to" gray cell in their default column settings. I know that you can do this to each folder individually be going in to the "Customize View" and selecting the "field" button but this...
