VBA: insert blank columns by calling a sub.

Hello experts,

I have the following procedure:

Sub sbInsertingColumns()
Range("E:F").EntireColumn.Insert
End Sub

I would like to:

1define the range as parameter

So I can call the sub with the Range that I want something like this:

Sub sbInsertingColumns(dRange as Range)
dRange.EntireColumn.Insert
End Sub

then call it:

sbInsertingColumns(Range("E:F"))

and have a version that allows me to insert multiple columns based on the number of columns reported:

Sub sbInsertingColumns()
'
Range("B1").EntireColumn.Insert 'define a parameter to insert the number of column that I want

End sub

Thank you again for your help.

then use
Sub macro()
sbInsertingColumns ActiveSheet.Range("E1"), 3
End Sub

Sub sbInsertingColumns(dRange As Range, iNrOfColumns As Integer)
 dRange.Resize(1, iNrOfColumns).EntireColumn.Insert
End Sub
