I have a named column named RESULT which I am processing in VBA. The first row of the RESULT column is a header and should be ignored from processing. What I am looking for is a way I can select a subset of a named group in Excel. In this case the named group is an entire column, and I want to select a subset of this group from row 2 to the last row of the spreadsheet. I am sure there must be an easy way of doing this?

Hello,

try something along the lines of

Sub test()
Dim lrow As Long
   lrow = Cells(Rows.Count, Range("MyRange").Column()).End(xlUp).Row
   Range(Cells(2, Range("MyRange").Column()), Cells(lrow, Range("MyRange").Column())).Select
End Sub
