Folks

I have a for loop , but the loop is limited to a hardcored range(B2:AZ150) where the
where the "X" value is found

however what I require is the loop to be able to  by itself to determine where the last colum is found , this way the loop does not look further if the range value is not present or beyond, if there are

below is my code


Dim rngCell As Range, rngData As Range  
Dim strSQL As String
Set rngData = Sheet1.Range("B2:AZ150")
For Each rngCell In rngData
   If rngCell.Value = "X" Then
     strSQL = "insert into car (brand,make,dealer)values (rowseq.nextval,'" & Cells(rngCell.Row, 1).Value & "','" & Cells(1, rngCell.Column).Value & "');"
     With Sheets("Sheet1")
        .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Offset(1).Value = strSQL
     End With
   End If
Next rngCell

Try this:

Sub Demo()

    Dim rngCell As Range, rngData As Range
    Dim rLastCell As Range
    Dim strSQL As String

    Set rLastCell = Sheets("Sheet1").Cells.Find(What:="*", After:=Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 2), LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, MatchCase:=False)

    Set rngData = Sheet1.Range("B2:" & ColLtr(rLastCell.Column) & "150")

    For Each rngCell In rngData
        If rngCell.Value = "X" Then
            strSQL = "insert into car (brand,make,dealer)values (rowseq.nextval,'" & Cells(rngCell.Row, 1).Value & "','" & Cells(1, rngCell.Column).Value & "');"
            With Sheets("Sheet1")
                .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Offset(1).Value = strSQL
            End With
        End If
    Next rngCell

End Sub

Function ColLtr(iCol As Long) As String
    If iCol > 0 And iCol <= Columns.Count Then ColLtr = Replace(Cells(1, iCol).Address(0, 0), 1, "")
End Function
