Dynamic named range formula

Hi,

I always have data alike this

HEADING
DATAA
DATAB
DATAC
DATAD
DATAE

0

Open in new window


So I always have data ending with a zero 1 row below the last data. It could be 100s of lines.

Eg: I could have data from

A2 to A982

and then have a zero (0) in line A984

What I want to do is create a dynamic named range that will grab just the data part and omit the zero and the space above it based on formula only (currently I am doing it via VBA and want to eliminate vba)

Thank you in advance!

Try something like:

=Sheet1!$A$2:INDEX(Sheet1!$A:$A,MATCH(0,Sheet1!$A:$A,0)-2)

assuming the sheetname is Sheet1
0

=Sheet1!$A$2:INDEX(Sheet1!$A:$A,MATCH(0,Sheet1!$A:$A,0)-1)

^ That worked; instead of -2, I changed it to -1

Thanks!
