Just a simple VBA question...

I need to find the last row in the active worksheet with data in any column and then delete that row.

What's the VBA script to do that?

If your sheet only has data in the range E5-J10,

ActiveSheet.UsedRange = E5-J10
ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count = 6
ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count) << row 6 of the range, so E10-J10

ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Cells.End(xlDown).Row  '' don't know never used this, result is unpredictable

FWIW, the accepted answer is incorrect, try putting data in c2,c3,i7 and running it.

activesheet.Cells.End(xlDown).EntireRow.Select   << goes to last row in sheet, not data

I am not sure if the question should be reopened to rectify the error.
