    i have this loop running and it finds the last row. It is pretty slow is there a quicker way to find the last row with something in it.

    Code:

       'Variables used for finding out last row in worksheet.
       Dim blnContinue As Boolean
           
       'Finds out the last row in worksheet.
    '--Start Last Row--'


       'Set initial values
       blnContinue = False
       gintStartRow = 1
       
       'Code for finding last row
       Do While blnContinue <> True
           frmProgress.UpdateStatus
           If Worksheets("Isamastr").Cells.Range("A" & gintStartRow).value <> "" Then
               gintStartRow = gintStartRow + 1
           Else
               gintLastRow = gintStartRow - 1
               blnContinue = True
           End If
       Loop
    '--End Last Row--'

    The following bit of code will find the last cell with something in it in the column below cell A1.


    Range("A1").End(xlDown).Select


    Works in Excel 2000, so you'll have to try it in Excel 97 to see if it works.
