I have data currently in an Excel spreadsheet in Columns C:Q
Columns are going to be added but Column C will always be the starting point with C6 being the first data cell. Row 5 has headings and no cell in the data area in row 5 is blank.
Row 6 has data but there are cells which are blank.

I would like to select data from C6 to the last row in the next to last column. (Currently I would like to select C:P as P is the second last column)
I have a tag column 6 columns to the right of P that has various codes. IF there is an X, I would like to highlight the entire row.

VBA Code:
'If Close = Y , then shade row from C:T (T=Sen All Funds)
Dim LastRow As Integer
'Identify Data Rows
LastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

'Select data from A4 to last data row in T (U= Row#)
Range("C4:P" & LastRow).Select   'I WOULD LIKE TO SELECT THIS RANGE WIHTOUT USING P
'Conditional format -- shade A:K blue if two conditions are met
    Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=rc[6]=""X"""  'IF THERE IS AN X SIX COLS TO THE RIGHT OF THE LAST COLUMN SELECTED, THE ROW SHOULD BE HIGHLIGHTED
    Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority
    With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
        .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
        .Color = 14539203 'grayish blue
        .TintAndShade = 0
    End With
    Selection.FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = False
    Range("K6").Select

I hope that this is not too complicated a question and someone can help. I am at sixes and sevens on how to select the data that I require and then highlight the row that corresponds to the cell that is coded X. Thank you.

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.

I have used macros to alter CFs on a sheet, but find that it's annoying because if I change the CF manually I also have to change it in the macro. Here is the formula I used and the macro I recorded.

=UPPER($C6)="X"

VBA Code:
Range("C6:P16").Select
    Cells.FormatConditions.Delete
    Range("C6:P16").Select
    Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
        "=UPPER($C6)=""X"""
    Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority
    With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
        .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
        .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorAccent1
        .TintAndShade = 0.399945066682943
    End With
    Selection.FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = False

You of course would change the range to what you need.

Thank you. This is tremendously helpful. I am very close to getting to the desired solution.
Is there any way that I can avoid saying $V4 but rather do it with using offset?

VBA Code:
'Shade Row if there is agreement -- Y in Close column
Dim LastRow As Integer
LastRow = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

'Select B2:LastCol-2
Range("C4:" & Left(CStr(Range("B2").End(xlToRight).Offset(0, -1).Address), Len(CStr(Range("B2").End(xlToRight).Address)) - 1) & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).Select

'If Close is Y then Conditional Format
    Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=UPPER($V4)=""Y"""   
'If I caould use offset or something like that but that would still get $V4 or a column 6 to the right of the selection that would be helpful 

    Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority
    With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
        .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
        .Color = 16777164
        .TintAndShade = -0
    End With
    Selection.FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = False

Any formula you can write in a cell can be applied in Conditional Formatting. The result has to be either TRUE or FALSE.
