Ctrl+Shift+D lists all visible cells with data. With the program maximized, you should be able often to find the first cell with data.

Subject: Re: Copying contents of a sheet
All of these methods are useful for copying the entire sheet. Can we touch on the other part of John’s question? That is, if you know there is data in the sheet, but you aren’t sure where it starts, is there a way to find the first cell with data in it? For example, I was organizing an event recently and the hotel was sending me the list of room reservation details for my attendees. It appears the worksheet was formatted to look pretty when printed with a logo graphic at the top, What was tricky was that it took me a while to find the first cell with data in it, as they had left the first few columns and top few rows empty for visual appeal. I was going row by row down the worksheet trying to find the first cell with meaningful data in it so that I could copy it to my own planning file, which was somewhere around c15. If you know one of the cell’s contents, I suppose you can do a find that then jump to the top of the row or columns, but I wonder if there is another way.

I need to copy the contents of a sheet and paste the contents into another sheet in another workbook. The trick is that I do not know which cells in the sheet contain data.
Any suggestions on how to find out what range of cells have data. Then the best way to select that area to copy to the new sheet.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
