Please can you help, I would like a command button that can find the last value within Column B (B14 downwards)

So if there was text in B14,15,16,17 the command button would select B18

If there was no text in any of the columns from B14 down... then B14 would be selected

Hi there, try this.


intNextRow = GetNextRow("B")

Sub GetNextRow(strColumn As String)
	intRow = ActiveSheet.Cells(65536, strColumn).End(xlUp).Row
	If intRow < 14 Then
		intRow = 14
		intRow = intRow + 1
	End If
	GetNextRow = intRow
End Sub
