    How to select a dynamic (?) range?

    Hello all

    Hope someone can help with this - Please can I have some VB code that will select all rows in columns H2:M2, when I don't know each time where the last row will be? I'm guessing this is a dynamic range, but not sure!

    Thank you

    Helen

    It's mimicking this action: select the first cells and press the down arrow while holding down the ctrl+shift keys

    You don't need to select ranges in VBA as a rule.

    If the range has empty rows & columns around it you could use CurrentRegion
    Hope that helps.

    Thank you for this - I haven't yet got my head round "dim" and all that though! Can you please advise what the numbers (2, 8 and 13) apply to?

    The numbers are references to Row & column (R1C1), so Cells(1,1) is A1

    Wonderful - I'll give that a go, thanks. Do I need to use the rng.copy if I don't need to copy it? Just need to select the range.

    Sorry - it only selects the first 2 columns in the range! Any ideas?
