Three Ways to Get the Last Row Number in a Range

This post explains that how to get the last row number in a range or a table in excel. Sometimes, you want to know the last row number for a excel range. The below will guide you how to get the last row number in range using excel formula through the following three ways:

Get the Last Row Number using ROW and ROWS Functions

If you want to get the last row number in a range, you need to know the first row number and the total rows number of a range, then perform the addition operation, then subtract 1, the last result is the last row number for that range.

We have talked that how to get the first row number in the previous post. And how to get the total row numbers in a range? And you can use the ROWS function. So we can write down the following formula to get the last row number in a range (assuming that B3:D6):

=ROW(B3:D6) + ROWS(B3:D6)-1

Get the Last Row Number using ROW and ROWS Functions1

The above ROW function returns the first row number in range B3:D6.

=ROWS(B3:D6)

Get the Last Row Number using ROW and ROWS Functions2

The ROWS function returns the total number of rows in range B3:D6.

Get the Last Row Number using MIN, ROW and ROWS Functions

To get the first row number, you can also use the ROW function within MIN Function as follows:

=MIN(ROW(B3:D6))

Get the Last Row Number using MIN, ROW and ROWS Functions1

So we can use the above formula to create a new formula to get the last row number in a range as follows:

=MIN(ROW(B3:D6)) + ROWS(B3:D6)-1

Get the Last Row Number using MIN, ROW and ROWS Functions2

Get the Last Row Number using ROW, INDEX and ROWS Functions

As I said in the previous post, we can use the INDEX function in combination with ROW function to get the first row number in a range. So we can write down another different formula to find the last row number in a range, such as: B3:D6.

=ROW(INDEX(B3:D6,1,1)) + ROWS(B3:D6)-1

Get the Last Row Number using ROW, INDEX and ROWS Functions1
