I'm trying to write a macro to format a header row, but don't know how to do so until the last non-blank cell (files may have different numbers of columns). Here's what I have, clearly I don't need to go up to column XFD. how do I stop at a non-blank cell? thanks!!!

Selection.Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = xlNone
Range("B7:XFD7").Select
With Selection.Interior
.Pattern = xlSolid
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.ThemeColor = xlThemeColorDark1
.TintAndShade = -0.249977111117893
.PatternTintAndShade = 0

Welcome to the Board!

Try:

Code:
Selection.Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = xlNone
With range("B7",cells(7,columns.count).end(xltoleft)).Interior
.Pattern = xlSolid
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.ThemeColor = xlThemeColorDark1
.TintAndShade = -0.249977111117893
.PatternTintAndShade = 0
Hope that helps.

Thanks! The formula is:

=CONCATENATE(C8," ",D8)

And I want to fill it down column E, to the last non-blank in column D.

Assuming you want to start in Row 8 or Column "E"
Rich (BB code):
Sub AddFormula()
Dim LR As Long
LR = Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row
With Range("$E$8:$E" & LR) 'Change this line if needed
      .Formula = "=CONCATENATE(C8,"" "",D8)"
End With
End Sub
BTW: You can add a line to change the formula to Values
Rich (BB code):
Sub AddFormula()
Dim LR As Long
LR = Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row
With Range("$E$8:$E" & LR) 'Change this line if needed
     .Formula = "=CONCATENATE(C8,"" "",D8)"
     .Value = .Value
End With
End Sub
