Hi,
Some people use UsedRange but i simply add a function:

Function LastRow()
  For i=1 to 32000
   Cells(i,1).Select
   a = ActiveCell.Value
   if a <> "" then
   LastRow=a-1
   Exit Sub
  Next
End Function

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi guys... anothe Idea.

1) Use the CountA function to know how many cells in a range are not empty: =counta(A1:A2000) returns de number of non-empty cells between A1 and A2000.

2) In code... the same thing:

public function RecNumber() as double
RecNumber= Application.WorkSheetFunction.CountA(Range("A1:A2000")
end Function

Hi,


Worksheet.Rows.Count gives 65,536 and is incorrect

public function RecNumber() as double
RecNumber= Application.WorkSheetFunction.CountA(Range("A1:A2000")
end Function

is also OK

If you have for sure that blanks rows are not allowed, try this:

Function CountRecs() As Long

Range("A1").Select
Range("A1", Range("A1").End(xlDown)).Select
'MsgBox Selection.Cells.Count
CountRecs = Selection.Cells.Count

End Function

With this solution, you need to hard-code the range to count.
