Select all data in a column that has blank cells

Hi,

I have a macro that copies a column from one sheet to another.

Column A has no blanks but column B does.

When I use the following to copy, it only selects data down to the first blank cell instead of the entire column.

    Sheets("test1").Select
    Range("B1").Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Selection.Copy
    Sheets("test2").Select
    Range("B1").Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste

I'm guessing the best way is to set a "range" which would be the number of rows with data in column A, then use that range value to copy columns that have blank cells but haven't found a good useable example googling.

Thanks in advance,

The simple change to select the entire common is
Range("B:B") and take out Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select all together

do you need a more targeted approach?
