How to find the last row or column with data in Excel?

In a large worksheet, if you want to determine the last row or column which contains values quickly and easily, you just can drag the scrollbar to find it. But it will be painful if there are thousands of data rows in your worksheet. In this article, I will talk about some useful VBA code for you to solve this task.

Find the last row or column with data by using VBA code


Most of us may be consider of locating the last cell by pressing Ctrl +End keys to find the last row and column, but the shortcut key will not locate the accurate value cell if there are some cells that have formatting below the data range. So here, please use the following VBA code:

1. Activate your worksheet which you want to determine the last row or column with data.

2. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

3. Then click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.

VBA code: Find last row with data

Sub sblastRowOfASheet()
'Update 20140603
Dim xLastRow As Long
xLastRow = Application.ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
MsgBox "Last Used Row: " & xLastRow
Do While Application.CountA(ActiveSheet.Rows(xLastRow)) = 0 And xLastRow <> 1
    xLastRow = xLastRow - 1
Loop
MsgBox "Last Row with Data: " & xLastRow
End Sub

4. And then press F5 key to run this code, and prompt box will pop out to tell you the row number of the used range. See screenshot:

doc-find-last-row1

5. Go on clicking OK button, this time the last row number with values has been displayed as following screenshot shown:

doc-find-last-row1

Note: To find the last column with data, please apply this code:

VBA code: Find last column with data

Sub sblastcolumnOfASheet()
'Update 20140603
Dim xLastcolumn As Long
xLastcolumn = Application.ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Column
MsgBox "Last Used column: " & xLastcolumn
Do While Application.CountA(ActiveSheet.Columns(xLastcolumn)) = 0 And xLastcolumn <> 1
    xLastcolumn = xLastcolumn - 1
Loop
MsgBox "Last column with Data: " & xLastcolumn
End Sub
