Hello,
I tried to select a range of cells in excel 2010, using Range("A:H").Select
But this selects the whole worksheet. I have tried different worksheets and they work ok.
Does anyonw know what type of setting is screwing up the original 'range.select'
Thanks

The problem appears to be caused by 'merged cells". If I un-merge all the cells then the columns.select (or range.select) seems to work ok. So how can I get it to work on a worksheet with merged cells?

Hi damienjames0,

To select the range A:H on the active worksheet, I use one of the following:

ActiveSheet.Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(1048576, 8)).Select

ActiveSheet.Range("A:H").Select

ActiveSheet.Range("A1", "H1048576").Select

These work with "Merged Cells" as well.

Do reply with results.
