# ROW function in Google Sheet

In this lesson we will learn how the ROW function works in Google Sheet. The ROW Function is used to get the row number of a cell reference. Like ROW(F4) will return 4 as the referred cell F4 is in the 4th row of the Google sheet.

`=ROW([reference])`
• reference – [optional] A reference to a cell or range of cells. If this argument is omitted, the ROW function then returns the row number of the cell in which the formula resides.

Let’s understand with a simple example as follows. Here we have added the below ROW function in cell E1.

`=ROW(B2:D5)`

It returned the row number as 2 which is the top most row in the specified range of cells(B2:D5).

In below example we used ROW function in cell E3 without any argument. So it returned the row number of the current cell which is 3.
