     Dim LastCell As Long
     Dim i As Long
     LastCell = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
     For i = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row To 1 Step -1
       If Cells(i, 1) <> "0" Then 'here then like formula
     next i
end sub

Alternatively, let Excel figure it out by evaluating a formula:


LastRowNonZero = [MAX((Q2:Q1000<>0)*ROW(Q2:Q1000))]




LastRowNonZero = Evaluate("MAX((Q2:Q1000<>0)*ROW(Q2:Q1000))")

hi @Hans Vogelaar , the code works but rows varies from workbook to workbook, therefore is it possible to have the code in dynamic?


appreciate the assistance!  

appreciate the help anyways!


What is the highest row number of a cell with a non-zero value that you expect in any workbook? If it will never be more than 1000, the code that I posted will be sufficient. But if it could be up to - say - 15000, simply change 1000 to 15000 in the code. It doesn't matter if 15000 is too high for most of the workbooks.

that is true as well, i dont think the data would could go up to more than 5000. thanks for the assistance!
