Hello,
the following formula can help you to get all the row numbers of the non-blank cells, please try it, thank you!
=IFERROR(ROW(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$A\$12,SMALL(INDEX(NOT(ISBLANK(\$A\$1:\$A\$12))*ROW(\$A\$1:\$A\$12),0),COUNTBLANK(\$A\$1:\$A\$12)+ROW(A1)))),"")

=IFERROR(ROW(INDEX(A:A,SMALL(INDEX(NOT(ISBLANK(A:A))*ROW(A:A),0),COUNTBLANK(A:A)+COUNTA(A:A)- N ))),"")
You can replace N with number of items to skip. So to get the second non blank cell we skip 1 so N will be 1 as=IFERROR(ROW(INDEX(A:A,SMALL(INDEX(NOT(ISBLANK(A:A))*ROW(A:A),0),COUNTBLANK(A:A)+COUNTA(A:A)- 1 ))),"")

Hello, i used the function above finding the row number in which the cell in the column is not blank.

But, I used the function for a column which has a function itself and the analog function doesn't function. Anyone can help me please?
