Range.Count Property (Excel)
Returns a Long value that represents the number of objects in the collection.
The Count property is functionally the same as the CountLarge property, except that the Count property generates an overflow error if the specified range has more than 2,147,483,647 cells (one less than 2048 columns). The CountLarge property, however, can handle ranges up to the maximum size for a worksheet, which is 17,179,869,184 cells.
The following code example displays the number of columns in the selection on Sheet1. The code also tests for a multiple-area selection; if one exists, the code loops on the areas of the multiple-area selection.
Sub DisplayColumnCount() Dim iAreaCount As Integer Dim i As Integer Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate iAreaCount = Selection.Areas.Count If iAreaCount <= 1 Then MsgBox "The selection contains " & Selection.Columns.Count & " columns." Else For i = 1 To iAreaCount MsgBox "Area " & i & " of the selection contains " & _ Selection.Areas(i).Columns.Count & " columns." Next i End If End Sub
