If you have a very large dataset, it can be quite time-consuming to find the last cell with value in a row in your Excel dataset. In this article, I’ll introduce you to 6 methods by which you can easily find the last cell with value in a row in Excel.

Consider the following dataset. Here Information about different customers who have applied for a bank loan is given. Now we will find the last cell with data in a row using this dataset.

Let’s see how we can perform this task in 6 different ways.

**1. Using Keyboard Shortcut to Find the Last Cell with Value in a Row in Excel**

## 2. Getting the Last Cell with Value in a Row by Using OFFSET Function in Excel

If you know the number of columns and rows of your dataset, you can find the last cell value in any row by using the **OFFSET** function. To find out the last cell value in** Row 6**, type the formula in an empty cell,

`=OFFSET(B4,2,7,1,1)`

Here,

**B4**= First cell of the dataset**2**= Number of the row of your dataset excluding the first row**7**= Number of the column of your dataset excluding the first column**1**= cell height**1**= cell width

Press **ENTER **and you will find the value of the last cell of **Row 6**, in your selected cell.

**3. Using Excel INDEX and COUNTA Functions to Find the Last Non-Blank Cell in a Row**

Using the **INDEX** function along with the **COUNTA **function allows you to find the last cell value of any row. To find the last cell value in **Row 5**, type the following formula in an empty cell,

`=INDEX(B5:I12,1,COUNTA(5:5))`

Here,

**5:5**= Row 5**B5:I12**= Array**1**= row_num

You will find the value of the last cell of **Row 5, **in your selected cell.

**🔎**** Formula Breakdown**

↪️ The **COUNTA function **counts the number of cells in a range that are non-empty.

**COUNTA(5:5)** returns the total number of non-empty cells in **Row 5** => **8**

↪️ **INDEX(B5:I12,1,COUNTA(5:5)) **= **INDEX(B5:I12,1,8) **= **23**

So, final Output => **23**

## 4. Using the MATCH Function to Find the Last Cell with Value in a Row in Excel

Using the** MATCH **function, you can find the number of the last cell with a value in any particular row.

Here, our lookup cell value is **25 **which exists in Row **10**. We want to find the relative position of **25 **in **Row 10**, type the following formula in any of the empty cells,

`=MATCH(D14,10:10,0)`

Here,

**D14**= lookup_value**10:10**=**Row 10****0**= Exact match

You will find the number of the last non-empty cell of **Row 10**, in your selected cell.

## 5. Finding the Last Cell Value in a Row Using Excel LOOKUP Function

You can find the last cell value of the last row by using the **LOOKUP** function. Type the formula in an empty cell,

`=LOOKUP(2,1/(I:I<>""),I:I)`

Here, **I:I **= Last column of the dataset

After pressing **ENTER**, You will find the value of the last cell of the last row of the dataset, in your selected cell.

**6. Applying HLOOKUP Function to Find Last Cell with Value in a Row in Excel**

Using the **HLOOKUP **Function is another way to find the value of the last cell of any row. Now we will find the last cell of **Row 8** in our dataset. To find the value, type the formula in an empty cell,

`=HLOOKUP(I4,B4:I12,5,FALSE)`

Here,

**I4**= Last column of the first row (Reference cell)**B4:I12**= Range of Dataset**5**= 5th Row of our dataset including the reference cell’s row**FALSE**= Exact Match

You will find the value of the last cell of **Row 8**, in your selected cell.

How do you do #3 above, but pulling from another workbook? Thank you!

Hello

ANTHONY,Here, we’ll get the value of the last cell of a row and show it in cell

C14.But, as per your condition, we’ll retrieve this value from another workbook named

Sales. Now, we want to extract the value of the last cell ofRow 5from theDatasetworksheet of this workbook.To do this,

• At first, select cell

C14and call theINDEX function.• Then, select cells in the

B5:E5range.• After that, insert the

COUNTA functionand select the same range as the argument.• As usual, press the

ENTERbutton.• Finally, you can see the result in cell

C14and the final form of the formula is like the following.`=INDEX([Sales.xlsx]Dataset!$A$5:$D$5,COUNTA([Sales.xlsx]Dataset!$A$5:$D$5))`

Here, the part inside the square brackets are the name of the workbook. And the part before the exclamation mark and after the square bracket is the name of the worksheet.

That’s how you can do it from another workbook. It’s all from me on this topic. Follow our website,

ExcelDemy, a one-stop Excel solution provider, to explore more.Awesome, thank you that was helpful! Any chance you know how to reference 2nd to last cell with data from the other workbook?

Hello ANTHONY,

If your second to the last row is situated in

Row 11, then you can use the following formula.=INDEX(‘[Sales.xlsx]Dataset’!$A$11:$H$11,COUNTA(‘[Sales.xlsx]Dataset’!$A$11:$H$11))You have to just change the reference according to the position of your desired row.

Hi, how you can exclude a specific value thorugh the whole row?

Hello PEDRO,

As per your question, I will try to show an easier way to remove a specific value from a row. Here, we have the specific text

“Furniture”in three rows which we will remove from these rows.• Go to the

Hometab >>Find & Selectdropdown >>Replaceoption.Then, you will have the

Find and Replacedialog box.• Type

Furniturein theFind whatbox, andblankin theReplace withbox.• Click on

Replace All.Then, a message box will notify you about the number of replacements.

In this way, we have removed

Furniturefrom three rows.If you want to remove this specific text from a specific row only, then before doing the stated procedures just select that specific row.

Best Regards,

Tanjima Hossain
