How to Get the Last Row in Mixed Data with No Blanks

We can determine the last relative position WITHIN A RANGE for mixed data that has no empty cells with the COUNTA function. The COUNTA function counts the number of values in a range. The steps below will walk through the simple process.

Figure 1: Last row in mixed data with no blanks

Generic Formula

=COUNTA(range)

Formula

Last Column in a range: =COUNTA(A3:A12)

Last Relative Position in a Range: =COUNTA(A3:B12)

Setting up the Data

 

  • We will input the values as shown in FIGURE 2 in the range A3:B12

 

  • The result for last relative position in range A3:B12 and last column in range A3:A12 will be returned in Cell C4 and Cell C8 respectively

Figure 2: Setting up the Data

Last Relative Position in Range A3:B12

 

  • We will click on Cell C4

=COUNTA(A3:A12)

Figure 3: Last relative position in range A3:B12

Last Column Position in Range A3:A12

Solution examples
I have a Heading Title at the top of each column and keep my tally (formula) of that column in the second row. However, ever time I sort/filter my worksheet the second row also gets sorted and I lost my tally - which I use for analysis in the second sheet. I have tried freeze and split and neither works. Please help !

Hi, Hopefully someone will be able to help me. I'm wanting to calculate the average sum contained within a range of cells discarding blanks. The problem that I'm encountering is that there is an additional feature where I only want to take into consideration columns that contain specific text. =SUMIF(G79:HG79,"Sep-18",(G6:HG6/COUNTA(G6:HG6))) G79:HG79 will contain the specific text with G:HG containing the digits. Cheers all in advance
