Can't seem to find a "one line of code" solution to selecting A2 to last populated cell in Column A.

I thought this should work but it doesn't.

Range("A" & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).Select

You were close, swjtx99.

I didn't know how to do what you wanted in 1 step, but with the code you supplied I was able to work it out.

    Range("A2", "A" & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).Select

Let me know if you don't understand why the above works.

BTW, I don't think the topics Microsoft Visual Basic.Net or VB Script apply to this question.  It's VBA, but I don't know if there's a zone for that, so you maybe Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Software is the only appropriate option.

Fair enuf, swjtx.

Yes, googling for something as specific as this can be a waste of time, sometimes.

Thanks for the points.
