I have 6 columns for recording scores of clients.

  • Column N: Intake
  • Column O: 3 Months
  • Column P: 6 Months
  • Column Q: >6 Months
  • Column R: Discharge/Drop
  • Column S: Comparison Score*

There will always be an Intake score. I seek help with a formula to make the value in Column S default to the latest available score. I'm using that column along with the Intake column score to calculate the percent change in another column.

For example, lets say I have a new client and only an Intake score. I then want the Intake score value in Column N to also populate in that rows Column S. In another example, lets say I have a rating for all columns including discharge/drop, then I want Column R's value to populate in Column S.

Could someone help me figure out a formula to do this? Currently if a score is not available, that cell is blank.
