Is there a function that will find the first nonblank cell in an array, like returning the cell address or position in the array?

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.

Hi Mike

If the blank cells are genuinely blank (ie don't contain formulas returning "") and the other cells contain text (not numerics) then you could use:

=MATCH("*",L19:L50,0)

instead, which doesn't have to be array entered.
