Hi Experts excel 2007

I am using the following formula in cell a6 =row(a$53)-row(a $6)-1

In a6 I have formula =max (a6,1)

In colc.                     Cold.                      
Sheet1! C6:c53.       Sheet1! D6:d53

I want the value of A53 (formula in a6) to increase and decrease as row are add or deleted from table.

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.
