Hi,

What is the Syntax for Offsetting 18 columns across and then till the end of the rows. But i need the entire selection selected.

Normally i would say
 Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
 Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select

But there is gaps in the data, so i need to specifically say 18 Columns to the right and down to end.

Thanks
Seamus

I'm guessing you mean:

Range(Selection, Selection.Offset(0, 18).End(xlDown)).Select

Open in new window


but there is rarely any need to select anything.

Depending on the layout, you may also be able to use:

Selection.CurrentRegion.Select

Open in new window

That works perfectly for me Rory, just need to clear some errors and this is the quickest way to do it.

Thanks
