Ugh!!

Hell Experts,

I need help to find the last used cell column number in a set range.
My range is "B4:H4".  As long as there is something in one of those cells - that is my column number I need.

I have data in A4 & I4 so I can not use the typical examples I found on-line.

Once I find the column number - I can finish my code.

Any assistance would be great,
Thanks

Will the range always be B4:H4?

Try this function:
Option Explicit

Public Sub Test()

    Dim s As Worksheet
    Dim myRange As Range
    
    Set s = ActiveSheet
    Set myRange = s.Range("B4:H4")

    Debug.Print GetLastColNum(myRange)

End Sub

Public Function GetLastColNum(ByRef rngToCheck As Range) As Long

    Dim i As Long
    
    ' return 0 if nothing is found
    GetLastColNum = 0
    
    For i = rngToCheck.Cells.Count To 1 Step -1
        If Not IsEmpty(rngToCheck.Cells(i).Value) Then
            GetLastColNum = rngToCheck.Cells(i).Column
            Exit For
        End If
    Next i

End Function

Open in new window
