I have the following VBScript code.

CODE --> VBScript

lastRow = editWorkbook.Sheets(sheetName).UsedRange.Rows.Count
lastColumn = editWorkbook.Sheets(sheetName).UsedRange.Columns.Count

WScript.Echo ("Last row:" & CStr(lastRow))
WScript.Echo ("Last column:" & CStr(lastColumn))
WScript.Echo("Value:" & CStr(editWorkbook.Sheets(sheetName).Cells(lastRow,lastColumn).Value)) 

It is giving me as output
Last row: 1048458
Last column: 30

I have no data in the above mentioned cell. My last row with data is in row 187, last column:J

Why am I getting such an output? I would appreciate help in resolving this.

RE: VBScript Used Range


Data in an Excel sheet can be more than text an numbers.

You might have SPACE character(s) or unprintable character(s), for instance.

SELECT every ROW below Row 187 and right-click DELETE.

SELECT every COLUMN the the right of Column J and right-click DELETE.

Then run your procedure.

Keep your sheets clean thusly.
