VBA Code to shift print area based on last row of data

I have a spreadsheet that currently has the print area set as c3:0133.  I would like to have the print area reset (I guess with a Before_Print Command)  based on the last row of data at the time of printing.  This spreadsheet is a case expense log where users log their expenses in rows...but the amount of entries/rows will vary every time.  For example, if a user enters rows of data down to row 50 then before they print the print area would change to c3:c50

something like this in the ThisWorkbook module (to print c3:o50 in you example)
Cheers

Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)

    Dim ws As Worksheet, rng1

    Set ws = Sheets(1)

    If ws.Name <> ActiveSheet.Name Then Exit Sub

    Set rng1 = ws.Range(ws.[c3], ws.Cells(Rows.Count, "o").End(xlUp))

    ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = rng1.Address

End Sub

Open in new window

And I should have noted that the code is set to run on the first sheet, ie
Set ws = Sheets(1)
