route217,

Have you considered using dynamic named range?

BTW, in your question there seem to have some cell reference error.

You said A6 formula is =Row(A$53)-row(A$6)-1

Then you said
A6 formula is =Max(A6,1)

Set a named range Called LastRw or something with the following reference
=row(OFFSET($A$1,COUNTA($A:$A)-1,0))

This way, the LastRw is always reference to the last cell with data in column A.

Take a look at the sample workbook.

Without seeing your spreadsheet, this is a basic sample I can put together.
