To print a selection to the last row with data, you can change the print area to the specified selection before printing.

Set print area to the last row with data

Here I introduce a macro code to do this operation too.

1. Enable the sheet you use, press Alt + F11 keys to open Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, and click Insert > Module. See screenshot.
doc print last row 5

2. Paste below code to the Module script, and press F5 key to run.

VBA: Set Area to last row

    Dim xRg As Range
    Dim xRgLRow As Long
    Dim xRgAddress As String
    On Error Resume Next
    xRgAddress = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Address
    Set xRg = Application.InputBox("Select a range:", "KuTools For Excel", xRgAddress, , , , , 8)
    xRgLRow = xRg.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
    xRgAddress = Left(xRg.Address(1, 1), Len(xRg.Address(1, 1)) - 2)
    xRgAddress = xRgAddress & xRgLRow
    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = xRgAddress
End Sub

doc print last row 6

3. A dialog pops out to remind you to select column range you want to use. See screenshot:
doc print last row 7

4. Click OK, the print area has been set.
