If field specifies a repeating field then it returns the last non-blank repetition. If field specifies a related field, then it returns the last non-blank value in the related set.
The last related value will depend on the way related records are sorted. If the related records are not sorted, then the Last function returns a value based on the creation order of the records.
Last(ParcelBids) returns 1500 if ParcelBids is a number field defined to repeat with ten values and contains the values 2500, 1200, and 1500.
Last(Payments::PaymentDate) returns the payment date in the last matching record in the Payments table.
Last(if(IsEmpty(Company);PersonalPhone;WorkPhone)) returns the last non-empty phone number from the repeating field PersonalPhone when the Company field is empty. If the Company field is not empty, the function returns the last non-empty phone number from the repeating field WorkPhone.
