How to: Refer to Cells by Using a Range Object

If you set an object variable to a Range object, you can easily manipulate the range by using the variable name.

The following procedure creates the object variable myRange and then assigns the variable to range A1:D5 on Sheet1 in the active workbook. Subsequent statements modify properties of the range by substituting the variable name for the Range object.

Sub Random() 
 Dim myRange As Range 
 Set myRange = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:D5") 
 myRange.Formula = "=RAND()" 
 myRange.Font.Bold = True 
End Sub
