How do I count the number of columns in an Excel table in VBA ?

Hi,

I'm trying to count the number of columns in a table in an Excel 2010 VBA application  called 'Sales' but getting a 'Variable not defined' error.

Do tables have to be defined separately from sheets ? If so, how ?

My code is as follows .....

Dim lgColumnCount As Long
lgColumnCount = Range(Sales).Columns.Count

Thanks

I think you are missing some data in your command line. First of all it should be Range("Sales") and you are also not saying  which sheet you are referring to...
Can you share the workbook?

Try this

lgColumnCount= Sheet1.Range("Sales").Columns.Count

replace Sheet1 with whatever sheet the table is
