I have an html table and I would like iterate through the last column in the table and skip the first row. The table is dynamic so I won't know how many columns there will be.

Have a look at this:

$('tr').not(':first').each(function(i,row) {
    console.log( $('td:last', row).text() );

Yes, great thank you. Each td has an input text field. Is there an easy way to grab the value of the text field as I iterate through the column. If you would like, I can ask this as another question.

No worries. I've updated the fiddle, so have a play:

$('tr').not(':first').each(function(i,row) {
    console.log(  $('td:last input', row).val()  );
