Hi Mississippi Girl:

How about ...
Code:
With Range("A1").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell)
        .EntireColumn.Delete
End With

Note: to make sure that the LastCell is indeed the the physical cell in the last column of the worksheet, the workbook should be saved in case the entry in then last cell in the worksheet was deleted at some point in time.
