Hi

I'd like to do 3 simple things with VBA, which I haven't done before.

i) I'd like to select a range, but ignore the last row, when selected.

So if I had the values a, b, and c in cells A1, A2, and A3, and the values 1, 2, 3, and 4 in cells B1, B2, B3 and B4, I'd like to select the range A1:B3, instead of A1:B4.

Please find below sample data:

a1
b2
c3
4

<tbody>
</tbody>
I tried this code, but it didn't work?

Code:
Sub ABC()

Sheet1.Activate
Range("A1", Range("B1").End(xlDown)).Offset(-1, 0).Select

End Sub

ii) I'd like to create a chart based on the data above (I recorded a macro - see below - but recorded macros only use a fixed range):

Code:
Sub Chart()'
' ChartMacro 

    Range("A1:B5").Select
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddChart2(201, xlColumnClustered).Select
    ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Range("'count tab'!$A$1:$B$5")
End Sub

iii) I'd like to cut the newly created chart and paste it into cell M5 of Sheet 2.

Has anyone done this before?

If so, your help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

Code:
Sub ABC()
    Dim lr&
    lr = Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(3).Row
    Range("A1:B" & lr - 1).Select
End Sub

Great - that worked! Thanks Paul Ked .

Do you know how to do the other parts?

i.e create a chart with the data in the example and then move that chart into a different sheet? eg cell M5 of Sheet 2?

Thanks in advance.

Actually, I managed to work out how to create the chart, using your code!

So thanks for that! I just need to work out how to move it to a new tab now.

I also managed to do the last bit by modifying this

Code:
[COLOR=#000000][FONT=verdana]ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1).Cut[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#000000][FONT=verdana]Sheets("Sheet2").Select[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#000000][FONT=verdana]Range("B5").Select[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#000000][FONT=verdana]ActiveSheet.Paste[/FONT][/COLOR]
