Sample Visual Basic ProcedureThe following procedure selects data from the currently selected cell, to the end of the data on your worksheet.
You can easily modify the procedure to select from a specific cell by adding the following statement to the beginning of the procedure:
Range("B2").Selectwhere B2 is the reference of the specific cell.
Microsoft Excel version 4.0 MacroThe following macro selects data from the currently selected cell, to the end of the data on your worksheet. You can easily modify the macro to select from a specific cell by changing the SELECT() function in cell A2 to select the starting cell you want.
For example, to select from the first cell (R1C1) on your worksheet, change the SELECT() function in A2 to read: =SELECT("R1C1").
