Code:
Columns("F:XFD").Select
Selection.Clear
Hello All,
The code above is working to clear all the cells. However, I would like to use another way instead of just referring to Column XFD to find the very end column.
Is there another way to select all columns from "F:to the end" and instead of clearing, just simply delete all those columns?
Thanks for the help

If you're just going to Delete them anyway, why do you need to find it?

BTW, you rarely need to Select in VBA.
Code:
Sub test()
Range("F:XFD").Delete
End Sub
But if you really want to, can we determine where the end is based on Row 1?

Code:
Sub test()
Range("F:F", Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).EntireColumn).Delete
End Sub

You can use the reference number of the columns ("A"=1,"B"=2,"C"=3,...) to do it like this:
Code:
    Range(Columns(6), Columns(Columns.Count)).Clear
Note that it is not necessary to select the columns in order to clear them (and selecting them actually slows the code down).
The Macro Recorder is very literal, and records all of the range selections, but many/most can be eliminated to speed up your code.
