    Ótimo post, Resolveu meu problema:
    Achando a primeira célula vazia de determinada coluna de uma planilha.

    Sub SelecionaPróximaCélulaVazia()
    Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Select
    End Sub

    Este VBA selecionará a última célula vazia na coluna B. Para selecionar a última célula vazia em outra coluna, altere 2 no código Cells (Rows.Count, 2) para outro número.
