VBA Select Range when rows and columns are dynamic

I would like to create a macro that will select the range based on the following:
1) Upper left is determined by wherever the curser is placed when the macro is executed.
2) Lower right is determined by last row with data in COL A and last column with a header.

The macro will be executed on the active worksheet in whatever workbook is open.

For example, this code gives me lots of empty records:     Range(Selection, ActiveCell.SpecialCells(xlLastCell)).Select

Thanks for your help, Experts!

Try this.
LastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
LastCol = Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column

Range(ActiveCell, Cells(LastRow, LastCol)).Select

Open in new window
