# Formula to auto fill date based on last non blank

01/25/18 Edited 12/09/19

I figured out the formula to give me exactly what I need in Excel:

=IF(LOOKUP(2,1/(A1:D1<>""),A1:D1),EOMONTH(LOOKUP(2,1/(A1:D1<>""),A1:D1),3))

This formula does not translate to smartsheet. I need a formula that finds the last non blank in the row and auto fills a due date of 3 months later, last day of the month.

• =DATE(YEAR(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)), MONTH(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)), DAY(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)))

Was working on this and realized I have somewhere to be so here is what I came up with. This grabs the Date of the correct cell.

=INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)

This grabs the last non-blank and separates into Day Month and Year Values.

=DATE(YEAR(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)), MONTH(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)), DAY(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)))

• This is turning up #unparseable for me

• =MONTH(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)) + "/" + DAY(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1)) + "/" + YEAR(INDEX(A2:F2, 1, MATCH("", A2:F2) - 1))

Posts the cell you are looking for in Month/Day/Year
