i have an spreadsheet that has 3 columns and the data in every field is populated every month, so always the amount of data may varies.

for example, some months i can have from cell a1 to cell c32, and in other months i can have from cell a1 to cell c43

i need to know the final cell, in this example, c43.


i always have 3 columns, A, B and C.

thanks a lot.
