Range.Rows property (Excel)
Returns a Range object that represents the rows in the specified range.
expression A variable that represents a Range object.
To return a single row, include an index in parentheses. For example,
Selection.Rows(1) returns the first row of the selection.
When applied to a Range object that's a multiple selection, this property returns rows from only the first area of the range. For example, if the Range object has two areas—A1:B2 and C3:D4—,
Selection.Rows.Count returns 2, not 4. To use this property on a range that may contain a multiple selection, test Areas.Count to determine whether the range is a multiple selection. If it is, loop over each area in the range, as shown in the third example.
The returned range might be outside the specified range. For example,
Range("A1:B2").Rows(5).Select returns cells A5:B5.
Using the Rows property without an object qualifier is equivalent to using ActiveSheet.Rows. For more information, see the Worksheet.Rows property.
This example deletes row three on Sheet1.
This example deletes rows in the current region on worksheet one where the value of cell one in the row is the same as the value of cell one in the previous row.
For Each rw In Worksheets(1).Cells(1, 1).CurrentRegion.Rows this = rw.Cells(1, 1).Value If this = last Then rw.Delete last = this Next
This example displays the number of rows in the selection on Sheet1. If more than one area is selected, the example loops through each area.
Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate areaCount = Selection.Areas.Count If areaCount <= 1 Then MsgBox "The selection contains " & _ Selection.Rows.Count & " rows." Else i = 1 For Each a In Selection.Areas MsgBox "Area " & i & " of the selection contains " & _ a.Rows.Count & " rows." i = i + 1 Next a End If
