Selecting a range, defining it to use later in a procedure.

I am copying 500 rows of data.  How would I recall these to use later in a procedure?
Could I use: RangeToUseLater = ??

Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(499, 0)).Copy

I need to run a few other thing before I get the range.  Or do I need to re-org the sequence so I get it when I need it?

you can simply name the range, and use it later in a formula, etc...

Dimension a range variable then assign this range to it like so:
Option Explicit
Dim rng as Range

Sub MyProcedure()
.
.
.
Set rng = Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(499, 0))
.
'do other stuff
.
.
rng.Copy
.
'
.
End Sub

Open in new window


If you're range is on a different sheet than the destination, you'll want to define the range as part of that specific worksheet.
