I would like to have a formula that gives the row number of the last cell containing data in a column.  That column will have blank cells between data in that column.

Try this to give the row number of the last populated cell in A1:A1000

=MATCH(2,INDEX(1/(A1:A1000<>""),0))

extend range as required, in Excel 2007 and later versions you can use A:A for whole column.....

regards, barry
