Range definition using Cells

How do I write the range ActiveSheet.Range(A5:B5,D5:AM5) using the cells notation ?
I want to define the range using row numbers and column numbers...

RE: Range definition using Cells

From Referring to Excel Ranges

ActiveSheet.Range(Cells(2, 2), Cells(5, 5)).Interior.Color = vbYellow

Makes Range B2-E5 yellow

   Union(Range(.Cells(5, 1), .Cells(5, 2)), Range(.Cells(5, 4), .Cells(5, 39)))
End With

If you want to make your life a little easier in determining the R1C1 value, you can switch the excel worksheets to R1C1 instead of Letter Row format.
