I have a savings book register in excel, the names of all 5 kids as worksheet names. Each kid enters the deposits and withdraws under there tab or worksheet. The formula is Balance + deposits withdraws. Would it be possible to have something like a cover sheet based on the worksheets that would show the ending or current balance for all the kids on one sheet? We are using excel 2000

perhap this
=LOOKUP(99^99,Sheet2!G:G)
change the sheet reference accordingly and this will give you the last enter value in col G
This should works even with blanks in the midst of the rangeHope this is helpful

I might be wrong but it can be more simplified with "=link". Drag the formula upto G65536 and link it to coversheet.Regards

LOOKUP(99^99,Sheet2!G:G) will return the last number of the specified range[/quote]
I am still confused with the term "large number".
It returns the value in case balance is a (ve) figure.Regards

99^99 is the number
99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99 x 99
This really is a VERY LARGE number.
The lookup function attempts to find this number in column G:G of Sheet2. When it fails to find the number it returns the last number in the column instead.
This works because Lookup expects the numbers in G:G to be already sorted in numerical order, and when it can't find the number it is looking for it returns what it thinks is the nearest match in the list.

You'll often see 9.99999999999999E+307 in formulas of this kind, because that is the largest number that can be entered in a cell in Excel.
