Application.ActiveCell Property

Office 2007
Returns a Range object that represents the active cell in the active window (the window on top) or in the specified window. If the window isn't displaying a worksheet, this property fails. Read-only.

Syntax

expression.ActiveCell

expression   A variable that represents an Application object.

Remarks

If you don't specify an object qualifier, this property returns the active cell in the active window.

Be careful to distinguish between the active cell and the selection. The active cell is a single cell inside the current selection. The selection may contain more than one cell, but only one is the active cell.

The following expressions all return the active cell, and are all equivalent.

Visual Basic for Applications
ActiveCell
Application.ActiveCell
ActiveWindow.ActiveCell
Application.ActiveWindow.ActiveCell

Example

This example uses a message box to display the value in the active cell. Because the ActiveCell property fails if the active sheet isn't a worksheet, the example activates Sheet1 before using the ActiveCell property.

Visual Basic for Applications
Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate
MsgBox ActiveCell.Value

This example changes the font formatting for the active cell.

Visual Basic for Applications
Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate
With ActiveCell.Font
    .Bold = True
    .Italic = True
End With
