Excel VBA Range reference error

I'm having trouble setting a searchrange.  I need to search through the entire worksheet and I have a parameter for searchrange.  Any help would be great.


    'get range
    Dim LastCell As Range
    Dim SearchRange as Range
    Dim ColID As String
    Dim lastCol As String
    Dim lastRow As Long

    Set LastCell = sheet.Cells.Find(what:="*", after:=sheet.Cells(1, 1), LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
        LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, MatchCase:=False)
    ColID = LastCell.Address
    lastCol = Left(ColID, InStr(2, ColID, "$") - 1)
    lastCol = Replace(lastCol, "$", "")
    lastRow = CLng(LastCell.Row)

Set SearchRange = Range("A1:" & lastCol & ":" & lastRow)

    'get range
    Dim LastCell As Range
    Dim SearchRange As Range

    Set LastCell = Sheet.Cells.Find(what:="*", after:=Sheet.Cells(1, 1), LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, MatchCase:=False)
    If Not LastCell Is Nothing Then
        Set SearchRange = Sheet.Range("A1", LastCell)
    End If

Or, if you know there will always be a value on the sheet:

    'get range
    Dim LastCell As Range
    Dim SearchRange As Range

    Set LastCell = Sheet.Cells.Find(what:="*", after:=Sheet.Cells(1, 1), LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, MatchCase:=False)
    Set SearchRange = Sheet.Range("A1", LastCell)
