ROW is a function in Excel that returns the row number of a given cell. This function is especially useful when working with large data sets, as it can be used to easily identify the row number of a given cell or range of cells. To use the ROW function, simply enter the following into a cell: =ROW(cell reference).
The syntax of ROW in Excel is as follows: ROW(reference) where reference is the cell or range of cells for which you want to return the row number.
For example, if you want to find the total sales for the last two years for the east region, you can use the following formula:
This will sum up the values in the last two rows of the column B.
There are a few occasions when you should not use ROW in Excel. One instance is when you are referencing a table in a different worksheet. In this case, you would use the range notation, such as A1:D10, to reference the table. Another time you should not use ROW is when you are working with data that is sorted in a specific order. In this case, you would use the INDEX function to reference the data.
There are many formulae in Excel that are similar to ROW. Some of these include:
ROWS(): This function returns the number of rows in a given range.
COLUMNS(): This function returns the number of columns in a given range.
MAX(): This function returns the largest value in a given range.
MIN(): This function returns the smallest value in a given range.
AVERAGE(): This function returns the average value of a given range.
