I am trying to find the last entered value in a list of basic weight data. I

enter new numeric values to the list on a daily basis, but would like to

always show the last entered value in another cell also. The list also

contains zero values, that I want to exclude or ignore from my result, e.g.

0

300

250

350

375

0

0

would always return 375, as the last value in the list (which will also

always be positive) it's also the VALUE I need, not the position in the list.

A 4 5 5 5 5

B 0 0 3 3 3

C 0 0 0 0 2

D 0 0 3 3 0

I want to compare the earliest value to the latest (e.g. for A, that would mean 4-5 = -1; for B that would mean 3-3=0, etc).

I have a formula that finds the first non zero value in the row, but have been unsuccessful in writing one that finds the "last" non zero value in the row.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Any thoughts much appreciated!

I would like to know if there is a way to get the 5 largest values in a

list of numbers. I know using MAX would only get the largest. I would like

some rountine that would do it.

Thanks very much!

My dataset consists of Dynamic set of rows and columns, that means I don't know the column range and row range before hand.

I want the column number for the last non zero element in a given range in a row.And I want the operation repeated for all the rows simultaneously.

Hence I'm looking for a formula that could be copy pasted for the given range.

I'm currently using a simple loop shown below, which is obviously taking ages to execute

Note : i= column lenght

K= row length.

VB:For j = 2 To K l = i + 1 Cells(j, i + 7).Select Do l = l - 1 Loop Until Cells(j, l).Value = 1 Cells(j, i + 7).Value = Cells(1, l).Value - Cells(1, 2).Value + 1 Next jIf you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

=LOOKUP(2,1/(J6:V6>0),J6:V6)

Only problem is if there are blank numbers at the end of the row, it will include them and return a blank as the value.

Say the row is : "","","","",0,0,4,5,6,0,0,""

The first 4 months the publisher wasn't on contract so there are blanks, then if the pub was on contract but generated no revenue that month it's a zero, then the publisher must not be on contract anymore resulting in a blank cell at the end. I need a formula that will return "6" because that was the last amount of revenue the generated in the last month they actually generated some revenue.

I want Excel to return my last non-zero value in the Y 08-09 column using a formula from each of the rows as shown. Please can someone help me with a formula?

Thank you very much for the help. Look forward to a quick reply.

Best Regards.

Dattatreya.

$0 $0 $0 $285 $850 $278 $481

I use the Index/Match forumla below to grab the first non-zero value ($285)

{=+INDEX($A$1:$G$7,MATCH(TRUE,$A$1:$G$7>0,0))}

This formula works great to retrieve the first non-zero value.

How can I modify this formula to grab the second non-zero value ($850)? Then how do I modify it again to grab the third non-zero value ($278)?

THen how do I modify to grab the fourth non-zero value ($481)?

I don't want to use IF/Then statement as that might be too long. I think Index/Match would do the trick, but I am missing somthing.

Any help will be appreciated!!

i have a number of large data files filled with unnecessary 0 values. some of the 0s are important (if they occur before the final non-zero item), while others are unnecessary and interfere with analysis.

the data is stored in time bins (each column is a bin)

and each row is a unique trial

what i want to do is starting at the far right, find the last non-zero value for each row and clear all of "0" values that appear to the right of that cell in the row. it seems like it should be quite simple to do in a macro, but i can't figure it out. help would be much appreciated. thanks guys!

The brute force method is to devote another 48 columns with a check for each month's non-zero data (return 0 or 1), cum this from the far left and find where the cum does not increase. Hideously inefficient.

Need something elegant.

In MS Excel 2007, I'm trying to use a function to search for (and display) a

specific text string that resides within a cell, providing that it is the

last non blank cell in a range of cells across a row.

e.g. If searching row 2:2 (or a section of this row) for the last non blank

cell, I want to then search within that last cell to locate the word "pass",

where the same cell may also contain any combination of text/number values.

If "pass" exists within the cell, I want to return a the same text value of

"pass". Note that āpassā may exist across various cells in the range.

-- I've managed to successfully return the entire contents that reside

within the last non-blank cell (with the following formula):

=IF(ISNA(LOOKUP(2,1/('QA Results'!$D2:$CY2""),'QA

Results'!$D2:$CY2)),"",LOOKUP(2,1/('QA Results'!$D2:$CY2""),'QA

Results'!$D2:$CY2))

-- I've also achieved similar results when searching the cell range for the

last known cell that successfully contains the text āpassā (this is not

necessarily the last non blank cell in the range). Again the entire cell

content is returned.

=IF(OR(ISNA('QA Results'!D2:CY2),ISERROR(LOOKUP(2,1/SEARCH("Pass",'QA

Results'!D2:CY2),'QA Results'!$D$2:$CY$2))),"",LOOKUP(2,1/SEARCH("Pass",'QA

Results'!D2:CY2),'QA Results'!$D$2:$CY$2))

Any assistance would be appreciated.

of these I have some values. I need to find the non-blank value associated

with the latest date. Is there an easy way of doing this?

numerical value just not the alpha numerical one. Can someone help?

running total column that appears on a number of worksheets to a summary

worksheet in the same workbook. Any suggestions?

Hopefully a simple question - how do you find the last non blank cell in

a column ? The trick is that the column may contain blank cells along

the way before reaching the last non blank cell.

TIA

I am trying to average only the last 5 nonblank values in a row of

cells. Is this possible?

Does anyone know if excel has a worksheet function which returns the last ligitimate (numerical) value in a list? Or will I need to use a bunch of logic...

thanks

In excel I want to get the last 5 non zero values from a row (or column) and

get an average.

$0 $0 $0 $100 $200 $300 $400

I used the Index/Match forumla below to grab the first non-zero value ($100)

{=+INDEX($A$1:$G$7,MATCH(TRUE,$A$1:$G$7>0,0))}

This formula works great to retrieve the first non-zero value.

My question is how can I modify this formula to grab the second non-zero value ($200)? Then how do I modify it again to grab the third non-zero value ($300)?

The first value, second value, third value will be in cell A2, A3, A4 respectively.

Thanks for your help!!!

I need a formula that will return the first non zero number in the series (300 in this case) regardless of it's value, then I need another formula that will return the first occurance of the next non zero number (128), and so on.

Each cell represents a week, with the first non-zero being the start week and the last non-zero being the end week. All cell values are integers.

I'm trying to find the last (non-zero) value in a column. The cells

all have a function in them presently like =IF(C8>0,SUM(B8:C8)," ")

presently so that the cell truly is not empty. I've tried using

=LOOKUP(2,1/(D2:D350>0),D2:D350) but it displays nothing since all the

cells have a value (the function above).

How do I find the last cell having a numeric value (which is what the

first function provides)? Any help is greatly appreciated.
