Overflow Message

I am using the code below, tied to a command button.

The code autofits my columns and then enters a total line at the bottom of the data.

This is exported data, so the amount of rows varies each time.

This was working, but it is now giving an runtime error 6  'overflow' message at this line (line 21 below):

 rows_in_col = Range(cell, cell.End(xlDown)).Count

Any help appreciated- thanks!

Sub DoTasks()


 Dim cell As Range
    Dim total As Integer
    Dim rows_in_col As Integer
    
    Dim header As Range
    
    'Find cells in header
    If Range("F5") = "" Then
        'May only be one cell in header
        Set header = Range("E5")
    Else
        Set header = Range(Range("F5"), Range("F5").End(xlToRight))
    End If
    
    
    'Find the max row
    For Each cell In header
        rows_in_col = Range(cell, cell.End(xlDown)).Count
        If rows_in_col > total Then
            total = rows_in_col
        End If
    Next cell
    
    'Add the sum column two rows below max
    For Each cell In header
        Cells(cell.Row + total + 1, cell.Column).Formula = "=@subtotal(9," & _
            Range(cell, cell.End(xlDown)).Address & ")"
    Next cell
    
    'Same command as double clicking the border.
    Range("A:S").EntireColumn.AutoFit
    
    Cells(header.Row + total + 1, 1).Activate

End Sub
