I have a formula that I need to keep changing as I add rows of data. How can I change this formula to always adjust itself to finding the last row of data when I add new rows? I read something about using the OFFSET function but not sure how to use it.

SUMPRODUCT(--(Database!$H$4:$H$35020=$A$10),--(YEAR(Database!$C$4:$C$35020)=YEAR(C$18)),--(MONTH(Database!$C$4:$C$35020)=MONTH(C$18)),--(Database!$AP$4:$AP$35020=$B19),(Database!$V$4:$V$35020))

If you have Excel 2007 or later I'd advise you to use SUMIFS which is faster. With that function you can just reference the whole columns with no significant downside, i.e.

=SUMIFS(Database!$V:$V,Database!$H:$H$,$A$10,Database!$AP:$AP,$B19,Database!$C:$C,">="&EOMONTH(C$18,-1)+1,Database!$C:$C,"<"&EOMONTH(C$18,0)+1)

If you really want to continue with the current formula then try looking at "dynamic named ranges", see here
