This is the beginning of my macro, and it keeps on giving me errors.  I am trying to scroll down column N until the two cells to the right are blank.  I cannot figure out why this isn't working....

Sub Range()
Dim r As Range
Set r = Range("N1").Select

Do Until r.Offset(0, 1).value = "" And r.Offset(0, 2).value = ""
Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)
Loop
Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)

End Sub

note that I would change the Sub name from RANGE to something else, like SetRange for example...

Range is an Excel KEYWORD, and you will encounter all kinds of problems by using that as the name of a Proceude in Excel.

make this change:

Sub My_Range()
Dim r As Range
Set r = Range("N1").Select

Do Until r.Offset(0, 1).value = "" And r.Offset(0, 2).value = ""
Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)
Loop
Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)

End Sub

So I confirm my suggestion of changing the procedure name (same what Arthur_Wood suggests)

Doesn't change anything... I am still getting the error. If it helps, it is a run time error 424

you might want to specify the worksheet you want to handle, for example sheet1.range instead of simply raying range


Sub SetRange()
Dim r As Range
Set r = sheet1.Range("N1").Select

Do Until r.Offset(0, 1).value = "" And r.Offset(0, 2).value = ""
Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)
Loop
Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)

End Sub

also, you don't need the .select:


Sub SetRange()
Dim r As Range
Set r = sheet1.Range("N1")

Do Until r.Offset(0, 1).value = "" And r.Offset(0, 2).value = ""
Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)
Loop
Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)

End Sub
