I do calculate in a fix field the yield of a data-set as follow:

=Kurs!B593/Kurs!B2-1

which works perfect. But I have to change every day the field-link which I would like to avoid and tried therefore

=Kurs!B2000/Kurs!B2-1

which doesn't work as B2000 is not yet filled with a value. I tried this because on diagram, this works fine. Any idea what's the best way to get yield without manualy changing the formula?
thx

Hello Kongta, do you have a sample sheet? It would be easier to understand what you are looking for.

You can use the formula
=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(MATCH(99^99,$B1:$B$65536),2))/B1-1

Here's one better :)

=LOOKUP(9.99999999999999E+307,B:B)/B1-1

or
=Lookup(99^99,B:B)/B1-1
