1) I need to select cells from H3 to Mxxx where total rows are variable and unknown

2) I need to convert those values from Text to Number

I found this much code and it works for any selection that I manually highlight.  But I'm having trouble with number #1.

    '   Check to see if selection is formatted as Text -
    '   If so, then reformat selection as General
    '**********************************************************
    If Selection.NumberFormat = "@" Then _
            Selection.NumberFormat = "General"
           
    '   Replace formulas and numeric strings with real numbers
    '**********************************************************
    Selection.Value = Selection.Value

    With .Range("h3:m" & LastR)
        .NumberFormat = General
        .Value = .Value
    End With
