EXCEL: Return the Total of the Last 2 values in a Column

I have a column of numbers, which I add numbers to every week. I would like a formula to return the total of the last two cells in the column, regardless of the number of cells in it, which will always be increasing.

I would like a formula, and not an array, please.

I have attached a simple worksheet as well.

Thanks in advance!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's also possible to use OFFSET function as you suggest, e.g. allowing for data up to row 1000 (adjust as required) try this formula in A1

Excellent, Barry!! Your formula works perfectly. Thanks so much, and it's great to see you around and answering my dilemmas for me again! (and extremely accurately, as always.)

Saurabh, thank you, too, but your formula requires me to constantly adjust the range of cells as each new cell of information is entered.

Have a great night!
