I am seeking to find the Instance of errors in each of 60 columns of data with a variable row limit.

This formula works for me in one column:

=SUMPRODUCT(--ISERROR(INDIRECT("AX$7:AX$"&BuildLimit)))

where BuildLimit is a variable Named Constant say: 2000

I do not look forward to editing 60 formulas to adjust the Column from A:BH.

Try

=SUMPRODUCT(--ISERROR(INDEX($1:$10000, 7 , colNum):INDEX($1:$10000, BuildLimit, colNum)))


where ColNum is a named value defined by =COLUMN(AX$1)

As you drag the formula right, the value of colNum will change as will the column being investigated.

Thank You, gentlemen. That is totally workable and both techniques have merit.
