RangeSelection Property [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Office 2003

Returns a Range object that represents the selected cells on the worksheet in the specified window even if a graphic object is active or selected on the worksheet. Read-only.


When a graphic object is selected on a worksheet, the Selection property returns the graphic object instead of a Range object; the RangeSelection property returns the range of cells that was selected before the graphic object was selected.

This property and the Selection property return identical values when a range (not a graphic object) is selected on the worksheet.

If the active sheet in the specified window isn't a worksheet, this property fails.


This example displays the address of the selected cells on the worksheet in the active window.

MsgBox ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Address
