Hi,

I have the following code that sets C2:C2000 as the range. 2000 is an arbitrary number and hopefully the data will never be more than 2000 rows. I'd rather set the range to the last cell in column C regardless how many rows of data are in the sheet.

Dim rng As Range, cell As Range, del As Range
Dim strCellValue As String
Set rng = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("C2:C2000")
For Each cell In rng
etc.
etc.

Here is the code:

Sub get_last_cell()

Dim last As Integer

With ActiveSheet
        lastRow = .Cells(.Rows.count, "C").End(xlUp).Row
End With

Dim rng As range, cell As range, del As range
Dim strCellValue As String
Set rng = Sheets("Sheet1").range("C2:C" & lastRow)


End Sub

Hi Martinliss,

Exactly what I was looking for. As I have many of the same references in my code, I'll only have to change one line of code.

6 hours of googling = 0
1 post to EE and 5 min wait = 1

Thanks!
