I need to find the last column in the sheet and then autofill formats to the right. In other words I need to do this:

Columns("N:N").AutoFill Destination:=Columns("N:O"), Type:=xlFillFormats

replacing the letters "N" and "O" with variables.

I can find the last column easily enough with

LastCol = Range("A1").End(xlToRight).Column

but this returns a number, not a letter. Simply replacing "N" and "O" above with LastCol and LastCol + 1 returns "Aplication-defined or object-defined error"

I'm using the LastCol variable elsewhere in my code, so would prefer to keep it as a number. What I need, then, is the correct syntax for specifying two columns by number rather than letter. I've searched the help file to no avail.

Save Often
If you start asking yourself if now is a good time to save your Excel workbook, the answer is Yes
Use this type of syntax:
Range(Columns(5), Columns(7))
to refer to a range of columns numerically.

Many thanks

I tried many variations on that theme, but evidently never stumbled onto the most obvious one. :oops:
