Scroll down to last row

Scroll down to last row by default

If you are having a huge amount of rows in your spreadsheet, then you must be wondering how to navigate to the last row immediately.

So here is the script which will do your task:


function onOpen() {
  var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var entries = [{name:"MyFunction", functionName:"myFunction"}];
  sheet.addMenu("Scripts", entries);
};

function myFunction() {
  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var mysheet = ss.getActiveSheet();

  var lastrow = mysheet.getLastRow();
   
  mysheet.setActiveCell(mysheet.getDataRange().offset(lastrow-1, 0, 1, 1));
};


You can also navigate to your desired row, here is the script for it:

You can also navigate to your last modified cell, here is the script for it:

  1. Is there a way to have this script run automatically, so I don't have to train everyone who opens the doc to click on "Scripts" and then click on "myFunction"? I would like to be able to open the doc and have it automatically show the bottom row. Thanks!

    1. Do This;

      function onOpen() {
      var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
      var mysheet = ss.getActiveSheet();

      var lastrow = mysheet.getLastRow();

      mysheet.setActiveCell(mysheet.getDataRange().offset(lastrow-1, 0, 1, 1));
      };

  3. This does work but not when you have conditional formatting and dropdowns on the form. I've prepped 2000 lines with these formulas i need and this jumps to after thatbut i'm only on line 550 so pointless. I'll stick to usign ctrl and arrow down.
    Thanks
