I've come across plenty of formulas to find blank cells within a certain specified range, but can't seem to figure this out / find an answer.
I have a spreadsheet kind of like this:
Where column A is empty except for these header bars, and there are lots of sections going down the sheet with these header bars.
What I'm trying to do is have a formula that can find the row of the cell A header from within a section, but so that the formula will work in any section.
So in the above "sheet", let's say I was in cell B52. Maybe there's a formula to look at A52, and if empty keep moving up until it found that cell A48 was the first cell upwards to have a value, and return the value as 48 (the row).
I'm also hoping this can be done with regular formulas and avoid using g scripts if possible so it can remain dynamic.
apparently not quite clear enough. I made another sheet to help illustrate further what the data looks like and what I'm after:
I'm hoping for a formula that when placed in cell B32 as highlighted, it will return A28, or just 28, as in the row of the previous non-blank cell, but then ideally, the same formula could then be placed anywhere else, say for example B46, which would then return A37 as the previous non-blank cell in the A column.
