[vba] Simple VBA selection: Selecting 5 cells to the right of the active cell

I am trying to select and a row of 5 cells to the right (the selection should include my active cell) of my active cell. My current code is:

Sub SelectandCopy()
'
' SelectandCopy Macro
'
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+C
'
ActiveCell.CurrentRegion.Select
Selection.Copy
Windows("Study.xlsx").Activate
End Sub

I do want not a specific range from my worksheet because I want to be able to make a selection of these data sets from anywhere within my worksheet. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Would you use the Selection.Extend?

The answer is


This example selects a new Range of Cells defined by the current cell to a cell 5 to the right.

Note that .Offset takes arguments of Offset(row, columns) and can be quite useful.


Sub testForStackOverflow()
    Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5)).Copy
End Sub
