Hi,

Can anyone help me overcoming the 7 ifs problem - I want my formula to return the furthest right cell with a value in it (out of 10 cells).
I.e. if a1 = 1, b1 = 1, c1 = 2, d1 = 3, e1 is blank, f1 is blank, g1 is blank, h1 is blank, i1 is blank, j1 is blank I want my formula to return 3 (d1).

any help would be much appreciated!

thanks

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

thanks fairwinds - very nifty (not to mention quick)!

i should have said that the cells i'm looking at have dates in them but are just general format so the formula won't 'read' them.

sorry...
