Excel find last row with value in a specific column

1. How to find last row with value using vba in a specific column?

2. How to find last row with value  using vba in a worksheet?

The questions above are entirely two different scenarios.

The first question will find the last row with value in a specific column within the worksheet.

While the second question find the last row with value of the entire worksheet.

The first question is applicable if you need to find the last row in different columns.

Let's say Column 1 or Column A, or Column 2 or Column B etc.

Example code below will find the last row in a specific column via VBA code.

===================
'command Cells(Rows.Count, 1) = find the last row with value in Column 1 for Sheet3

Dim last_row As Integer


last_row = Worksheets("sheet3").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row


Msgbox last_row


'replace 1 with the desired column 

'ex: command Cells(Rows.Count, 7) = find the last row with value in Column 7
===================

If you don't need to specify a worksheet or a specific sheet then just use ActiveSheet

===================
Dim last_row As Integer

last_row =Activesheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row


Msgbox last_row


'replace 1 with the desired column number

===================



To find the last row that has been used in the whole worksheet, the VBA code below can do the task.

===================
Dim last_row As Integer

last_row = UsedRange.Rows.Count


Msgbox last_row

===================

VBA code above will count the last row even cells with white spaces or basically as the command implied it will count cells that has been used. So, cells with empty values or cells with a single or multiple spaces will be counted.

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.
A simple rule of thumb before any disaster strike, don't interchange the source and the destination.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.

Copy files with selected file extension using PowerShell and Robocopy:

$extension = ('.pdf', '.jpg', '.txt')
