a row based selection might look like this:
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select

Open in new window

whereas "Selection" could be "Range("A2")"

Assuming continuous data in at least one row and one column:

Range("A2").Select
CurrentRegion.Select


CurrentRegion.Select is equivalent to keyboard selection of "Ctrl + *"

Unfortunately there are some columns with nothing in them so this does not work on my current file.

Do the empty columns have a header? If they do then it should still work as the header row is constant. If not, hence why the EndRight suggestion doesn't work.

Would inserting just a # or just a space in the relevant columns be a workaround; just to populate these columns so that the columns beyond these get included in current region?

If populated the EndRight would also then work.

Thanks

Then try

Range(Range("A2"), Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell)).Select
