Hi garbage76,

this will display the used rows in the active sheet

sub uRowCount()

Dim xlApp as Object
Dim rowcount As integer

'create you excel object or use the current one

rowcount = Range("A1", Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell)).Rows.Count

MsgBox " " & rowcount

'do your stuff

end sub
