# Find last used cell in Excel VBA

When working with Excel VBA, it is common to need to find the last used cell in a range. This is useful for a variety of purposes, such as dynamically resizing arrays or performing calculations on a specific range of data.

## Understanding the Problem

One way to find the last used cell in a range is to use the `End`

method. In your code example, you are using `Range("E4:E48").End(xlDown).Row`

to find the last used cell in column E between rows 4 and 48. However, you are experiencing issues when there is only a single value present in a cell.

### Explanation

The reason you are getting the wrong output when there is a single value in a cell is because the `End(xlDown)`

method is designed to find the last used cell by continuously moving down until it encounters an empty cell. When there is only a single value in a cell, the cell is not considered empty, so the `End(xlDown)`

method will not stop at that cell.

## Solution: Using End(xlUp)

To overcome this issue, you can use the `End(xlUp)`

method instead. This method finds the last used cell by moving up from the bottom of the range until it encounters the first non-empty cell.

```
Dim LastRow As Long
LastRow = Range("E4:E48").End(xlUp).Row
Debug.Print LastRow
```

This code snippet will correctly find the last used cell in the range `E4:E48`

, regardless of whether there is a single value or multiple values present in the cells.

## Alternative Solution: Using Find method

Another way to find the last used cell is by using the `Find`

method, which allows you to search for a specific value or condition within a range.

```
Dim LastCell As Range
Set LastCell = Range("E4:E48").Find("*", SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)
Dim LastRow As Long
LastRow = LastCell.Row
Debug.Print LastRow
```

In this code snippet, the `Find`

method is used to search for the last non-empty cell in the range `E4:E48`

. The `"*"`

argument is used as the search criteria, which matches any non-empty cell. The `SearchOrder:=xlByRows`

and `SearchDirection:=xlPrevious`

arguments ensure that the search is performed from the bottom of the range.

## Conclusion

When working with Excel VBA, it is important to correctly find the last used cell in a range in order to perform accurate calculations or data manipulation. By using either the `End(xlUp)`

method or the `Find`

method, you can ensure that you are finding the last used cell regardless of whether there is a single value or multiple values present in the cells.
