Limit or Restrict Scroll Area on an Excel Worksheet. See Also: Limit/Restrict Scroll Area on an Excel Worksheet Non VBA Solution.

With the aid of Excel VBA and the Worksheet Selection Event we can restrict the scrollable area on any Excel Worksheet. The code below must be placed in the Private Module of the Worksheet Object. To get their quickly, right click on the Sheet name tab and choose View Code. In here paste the code below. It will restrict the scroll area to only those cells which house data. Note it leaves one extra row and column. This is so more data can be added and the scrollable area is automatically expanded.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim LastColumn As Integer

Dim LastRow As Long



        If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Cells) > 0 Then

    

        'Search for any entry, by searching backwards by Rows.

        LastRow = Cells.Find(What:="*", After:=[A1], _

                    SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _

                    SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row

         If LastRow <> 65536 Then LastRow = LastRow + 1

         

        'Search for any entry, by searching backwards by Columns.

                LastColumn = Cells.Find(What:="*", After:=[A1], _

                    SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, _

                    SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Column

                 If LastColumn <> 256 Then LastColumn = LastColumn + 1

                 

                 Me.ScrollArea = Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(LastRow, LastColumn)).Address

    Else

                 Me.ScrollArea = ""

    End If

 End Sub

If you wish to use such code on all Worksheets in the Workbook. Place the code below into the Private Module of the Workbook Object (ThisWorkbook). To get here quickly right click on the Excel icon, top left next to File and choose View Code. In here paste the code below;

Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)

Dim LastColumn As Integer

Dim LastRow As Long

Dim LastCell As Range



    If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Sh.Cells) > 0 Then

    

        'Search for any entry, by searching backwards by Rows.

        LastRow = Sh.Cells.Find(What:="*", After:=Sh.Cells(1, 1), _

                    SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _

                    SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row

         If LastRow <> 65536 Then LastRow = LastRow + 1

         

        'Search for any entry, by searching backwards by Columns.

                LastColumn = Sh.Cells.Find(What:="*", After:=Sh.Cells(1, 1), _

                    SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, _

                    SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Column

                 If LastColumn <> 256 Then LastColumn = LastColumn + 1

                 

                 Sh.ScrollArea = Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(LastRow, LastColumn)).Address

    Else
