    Is there a formula that will reflect the last filled cell in a column?
    I want to have a cell at the top of the column showing the current balance which will be way down the column.
    Thank you

    Thank you for your reply.
    This solution is a bit above my understanding so I'm going to need to work with it for a while.
    It seems that these are looking for the "max" mostly. Maybe not, not sure yet.
    I'm simply wanting a copy of the last number of the column to be reflected at the top of the worksheet.
    I'll keep working at these solutions and maybe I'll get the hang of it.

    Well............
    I copied and pasted a formula from your reply and it worked.
    =INDEX(A:A,MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,A:A))
    I have no idea how it works, but it does and that is what I wanted. (It to work)
    Thanks again and have a
    Merry Christmas
