Dear Experts,

Can you please have a short look on the attached code, in the first row I would like to select data range in column A and also in column E, after changing their colors.

In the current version it works but also changing color for B, C, D column data ranges.

Could you advise how to change it that only the A and E column data range should be changed?

thanks,
Range("A2:A" & LastRowWithValue & "", "E2:E" & LastRowWithValue & "").Select
    With Selection.Interior
        .Pattern = xlSolid
        .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
        .Color = 14540253
        .TintAndShade = 0
        .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With

Try this:

With Range("A2:A" & LastRowWithValue)
    .Pattern = xlSolid
    .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
    .Color = 14540253
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
End With
With Range("E2:E" & LastRowWithValue)
    .Pattern = xlSolid
    .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
    .Color = 14540253
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
End With

Thanks basically I have this version through the macro recorder, just thought that maybe in one row can be done the selection.

Because anyway I have five such columns and looks the code quite long compare to the fact that it is just colouring

or this

I think you have overdone it with the quotes - try:-
Range("A2:A" & LastRowWithValue & ", E2:E" & LastRowWithValue & "").Select

I think it will also work with subtle shift inyour commas and quotes to specify a non-contiguous range:

Range("A2:A" & LastRowWithValue & ",E2:E" & LastRowWithValue).Select
