    Code with last column and last row to recognize multiple commands through the macro code

    Hi.
    The code I have below is relevant to this spreadsheet Copy of Invoice test.xlsm
    In the code below I marked the script that has issues in red. The code takes the last row and the last column and works from there. This works fine with single commands, however, when I take a cell (based off the last row and the last column) and try to give that cell multiple commands excel sends back an error. When I use this multiple command (see part of code that is marked in red) for a range that is not based off the last column it works fine.
    Thanks in advance .

    Hi kosherboy,

    From your red text, first line, try changing to:

    With Range(Cells(lr + 1, lc - 4).Address)

    that may fix it for you.

    cheers,

    Arkadi

    Nice! That worked perfectly
    Can you explain to me why this changes everything?

    Range(cells(x,y)) would not work because it is not a function, and doesn't calculate the value of the Cells(x,y) position.
    Range is an object, and you can assign it the address of the cell, but need to feed it the actual address. Sine .address is a propery of the cell, you CAN say that Range should be assigned the value of the .address of the cell (i.e. Cells(x,y).address)

    Ok, so why does a code like the one below work without inserting the word address?
    The code below is based off only the last row and not a last column.

    In your example you are still supplying a range, albeit with LR+1 as a variable, but you are giving the B as text and adding the number. In that case you are using a variable to build the Range, but not calculating the Range, if you get my meaning. inside the brackets is not a cell(), but an actual Range value, because inside the brackets still will be read by the code as B and a number. Example if LR = 12 then the inside of the brackets is B12.

    The real parallel example would be replacing the ("B" & LR+1) with 'cells(LR+1 ,2)' and you will see that DOES need the .address to work

    Happy to keep discussing, but don't forget to mark as solved
