Application.Range (Excel)

Returns a Range object that represents a cell or a range of cells.

When used without an object qualifier, this property is a shortcut for ActiveSheet.Range (it returns a range from the active sheet; if the active sheet isn't a worksheet, the property fails). When applied to a Range object, the property is relative to the Range object. For example, if the selection is cell C3, Selection.Range("B1") returns cell D3 because it's relative to the Range object returned by the Selection property. On the other hand, the code ActiveSheet.Range("B1") always returns cell B1.

Range (Cell1, Cell2)

Dim strCell1 As String: strCell1 = 
Dim rngRange As Range
Set rngRange = Range(Cell1:=strCell1)


The following argument is required

Cell1 (String) - The name of the range. This must be an A1-style reference in the language of the macro. It can include the range operator (a colon), the intersection operator (a space), or the union operator (a comma). It can also include dollar signs, but they are ignored. You can use a local defined name in any part of the range. If you use a name, the name is assumed to be in the language of the macro.

The following argument is optional

Cell2 (String) - The cell in the upper-left and lower-right corner of the range. Can be a Range object that contains a single cell, an entire column, or entire row, or it can be a string that names a single cell in the language of the macro.
