    I have a file........see enclosed.

    I want to count the number of non-blank cells in a range from A to Z along a given row.

    Then once the loop is done i want it to tell me the row which had the most non-empty cells but its not working.

    FYI - you can use WorksheetFunction.CountA() to count the number of non-empty cells in a given range.
    Hope that helps,

    Do you apply that to the whole CurrentRegion at once?

    Re: Count number of non-blank cells in a range

    hi Mordred,

    your code is cool!

    But i was trying to count the number of non-blank cells in a given range and that range was a row from about A to Z. I then wanted to know which row had the most non-blank entries. Your code, while very very cool (and i can use it in another place), counts the number of non-blank cells in the "entire" range of a current region where c5 is in that region. I am not guaranteed that c5 is in the region of interest.

    Hi welchs101, The following code works base on you selecting a whole row and then running the code, which is also based on the workbook you provided where the first fill column is at C.
