Resetting the Last Cell in an Excel worksheet

Resetting the Last Cell in an Excel worksheet
25 April 2013

It's frustrating when Excel acts as if the active area of a worksheet is significantly larger than the actual area where you have data. Suddenly your scroll bars move you into uncharted areas, such as column TX or row 5000.

In programming parlance, this is known as the "used range" of a worksheet. Fortunately, there's a quick and simple way to reset the used range when necessary.
