I create a lot of ledger spreadsheets, including date,doc
no,item,debit,credit,balance,notes. I have a formula in the balance
column that tests for data in the item column to show the balance
otherwise I put a space there [=if(c23="";"";g22+d23-e23)], so the
balance does not display down the page.
That said, I am trying to figure out how to put the last amount (not
space) in the balance column in a formula to display the balance at
the top of the screen, refer to it in a consolidated sheet, etc.
It sounds as if the value you want is simply the sum of all the
values in column D minus the sum of all the values in column E. In
each case, I'm guessing you can include any empty cells in the
summation, so you don't need to identify the last row.

When I described how I might use the data in the last cell, I wanted
to be vague because I did not want a solution that would only work
under specific circumstances. Actually what I want is a
formula/function that will give me the amount in the last cell in
the column that has a numeric value.
It is often possible to solve a problem by doing something in a
different way from how you first imagine. If an apparently simple
problem does not have an obvious solution, that may be a hint that
you are going about things in the wrong way.
