    I think I have confused the power users with the wording on my previous question. I was attempting to get my sheet to show the last letter entered in a row (there will only be "one letter" in any given cell at any time ) say from row A2: AA2 as follows,

    ROW A2:AA2= A B C D E F G H I G K L M N O P Q U R S T V W X Y Z ANSWER IN AA2 WOULD = Z

    ROW A2:AA25= A B C D E F G H I G ANSWER IN AA26 WOULD = G
    and so on.
    The purpose of the sheet is to keep track of the many updates to the many drawings in our office at a glance in one column without having to scroll through a large list that is 24 cells wide some being updated only twice (C) and others at update Y at times.

    in a26 type =char(max(code(a1:a25))) and INSTEAD of pressing enter, hit shift-ctrl-enter. this will place brackets around the formula. adjust as needed. the formula will display the highest letter.

    Amended after better reading .

    Just use:

    =INDEX(A2:A25,MATCH(REPT("z",15),A2:A25))

    =INDEX(B2:B25,MATCH(REPT("z",15),B2:B25))

    These formulas will also work for data arranged columnwise, that is, in a row. Just adjust to suit.

    Another option isto paste this formula in cell A26 and drag it to cell B26

    it does not need to be aray entered.
    It will not work if you have blank cells between data entered.

    =INDIRECT(ADDRESS(COUNTA(A2:A25)+1,COLUMN(),1,1))
