Why isn't there a function to return the row number?
We have [column]@row. Why not =ROW()? I really need a column formula that returns the row number.
Best Answer

Insert an autonumber type column (called "Auto" in this example). Then insert a text/number type column and use this column formula:
=MATCH(Auto@row, Auto:Auto, 0)

Thank you! I had a crude formula =COUNTIFS(Column$1:Column@row, OR(ISBLANK(@cell), NOT(ISBLANK(@cell)))) that could not be a column formula. Your formula allows me to make it a column formula. Much appreciated.

I have been reading several hours and this its just what I have been looking for! This allows me to make it a column formula. Thanks!
