Please find formuls and its explanation here

Formula: INDEX(Data!$2:$65536,COUNTA(Data!$B:$B),COUNTA(Data!$2:$2)+1)


Index Function: INDEX function returns a value in an array based on the intersection of a row and column position within that array.

Index function has 3 parameters.

1st parameter (Data!$2:$65536)  represents an array

2nd one( COUNTA(Data!$B:$B)) represents row number

And 3rd one (COUNTA(Data!$2:$2)+1) represents  column number).

Where ‘Data’ is a sheet name.

Please find more details about index function here.
