Using Excel Range Variables


If you are serious about learning ranges, this book is a must!!

Power Up Using Excel Ranges


Range variables define a set of cells. VBA code that refers to a range variable can manipulate the contents and properties of the "cell set" defined by the range variable. An important property of range variables is that they are associated with a specific workbook and worksheet. If these associations are not specifically identified when the range variable is defined, then the definition of the range variable will use the active workbook and active worksheet as implicit associations.

The code below show how to specifically assign a range variable to a workbook/worksheet. This illustration shows the many forms that you can use to define and manipulate range variables and the data that is associated with the ranges.

If you need to refer to "Named Ranges" in an Excel workbook (Range Names created outside the VBA environment) then refer to:
