check for data in last row

The following line checks for the last row of data by looking in column "A" only:

lastrow = Range("A" & ActiveSheet.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

My worksheet has 5 columns of data (columns A through E).  Not every cell will always contains data.  Therefore, on the last row, there could be times where, for instance, column B, C, D and E contain data but A does not.  I need to check all columns in the used range, not just column A, to determine the last row.  How do I modify the above code to do that?

There is a UsedRange property, so try:
lastrow = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Row + ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count -

I seem to have placed the '/code' markup in the wrong place. Here is a correction

There is a UsedRange property, so try:
lastrow = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Row + ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count -  1
