Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select

The above vba code will paint the range I need to copy.  However, I only want columns B:G instead of the "End(xlToRight).

How do I modify the above to paint all the row with data and columns B:G?

Thanks

Expect you start in column B

Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.Offset(0, 5)).Select

Open in new window

Try this
dim r as long
r = Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).row
Range("B" & Selection.row, "G" & r).Select

Open in new window


Note: It is always better to avoid using select as this will slow down the VBA considerably
