# second to last in row

#### taino8632

##### Board Regular
I am using the following formula to determine the second to last numeric value in a row.

=LOOKUP(2^15,\$C2:INDEX(\$C2:\$BB2,MATCH(2^15,\$C2:\$BB2)-1))

However, in cases where there is only one value in the row I am getting an #N/A error. How do I account for this error? I want to return a blank if there is only one value in the row.

Thanks for your help.

### Excel Facts

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.
Code:
``IF(COUNT(\$C2:\$BB2)=1,"",LOOKUP(2^15,\$C2:INDEX(\$C2:\$BB2,MATCH(2^15,\$C2:\$BB2)-1))``
lenze

In excel 07 or 10

=IFERROR(LOOKUP(2^15,\$C2:INDEX(\$C2:\$BB2,MATCH(2^15,\$C2:\$BB2)-1)),"")

In 03 or older

=IF(ISNA(LOOKUP(2^15,\$C2:INDEX(\$C2:\$BB2,MATCH(2^15,\$C2:\$BB2)-1))),"",LOOKUP(2^15,\$C2:INDEX(\$C2:\$BB2,MATCH(2^15,\$C2:\$BB2)-1)))

You can make use of the ISERROR() function.

Many thanks to all. Both options work quite well.
