    How do you make an open-ended/dynamic range?

    I'm slowly learning how to use VBA and could use a bit of help understanding this: How do I create a dynamic range that depends on the number of columns in the sheet? For instance, I wanted to add an Auto Filter to my report that has 5 columns, so I wrote

    Range ("A1:E1").AutoFilter

    Since this particular report might have 6, 7, 8, 9, 10+ columns, I need to write the code so that it can count the columns and automatically create the correct range.

    If you have the time, could you walk me through the steps for doing this?

    Thanks.

    Can you explain what's going on in this part "& Cells(1, Columns.Count)"

    What happens when you add the "&" symbol to Range("A1"), and what specifically is Excel doing when it sees (1, Columns.count)?

    Also, why are you using .End(xlToLeft)? Wouldn't you want to go to the right?

    If your data has a single header row and is surrounded by empty rows and columns (as it should be), you can use
