    Formula to find first nonblank (excel xp)

    I have a range G699:G799 that will be filled with text starting with G699, then G700, then G701...

    I need to put in H699 the last cell that has text in it. Is there a formula to do that. would i use a lookup? thanks for the help

    If you are sure that they'll always be contiguous

    =OFFSET(G699,ROWS(G699:G799)-COUNTBLANK(G699:G799)-1,0)

    =LOOKUP(REPT("z",255),$G699:$G799)
