Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Summary sheet is like a database with numbers in column"A" that increase as records are recorded. I want to have a function in Cell"K8" that will search the Column with the numbers in the Summary Sheet , then Add 1 to the last number found on summary sheet. Can this be done. I tried DMax but keep getting an error.

I tried this function and it wants to work but keeps returning value# as result.

=MAX("Summary",A:A)+1

Would it be because I labeled the column. All the cells are formated as a number.

HELP!!!
