# too many ifs...

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

martyn

Hi, Welcome to the board!

Try:

=LOOKUP(9.99999E+307,A1:J1)

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...

Then try:

=LOOKUP(REPT("z",255),A1:J1)
