Hi all,

I have a spreadsheet that has a whole heap of data. I just need a simple code that when run will delete the last four columns of data. The column locations may be different each time i run the code (e.g. one time it could be V:Z, and the next it could be N:Q, etc.).

And similarly, I need it to delete the last row of data as well, which could also be on a different row each time.

Basically the last four columns and the last row contain a summary total of the data, which I dont want.

Any suggestions?

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

Code:
Sub Delete_Last()

    Dim Last As Long
    
    On Error Resume Next
    
    ' Last column
    Last = Cells.Find("*", , , , xlByColumns, xlPrevious).Column
    ' Delete last 4 columns
    If Last >= 4 Then Columns(Last - 3).Resize(, 4).Delete

    ' Last row
    Last = 0
    Last = Cells.Find("*", , , , xlByRows, xlPrevious).Row
    ' Delete last row
    If Last > 0 Then Rows(Last).Delete
    
    On Error GoTo 0
    
End Sub
