Hi folks,

Can anyone tell me the syntax to set a Range equal to the current selection.
For instance, suppose I have:

Dim NewRange as Range
Set NewRange = ? (current selection)

I've only ever used the activecell.currentregion, but in this particular circumstance I only want to work on a specific area of cells that contain data values, not the entire region of cells that are not seperated by a blank line or column. Many Thanks.

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

How about:

Set NewRange = Selection

HTH,

I should have known that. It just seemed like it would be too obvious. Thanks!
