i have a question, like i want to find last row number in a used range so when i use this code

Debug.Print ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Cells(rows.count, 5).End(xlUp).Row


it gives an error, although rows.count should give 1048576


but when i use 

Debug.Print ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Cells(1000000, 5).End(xlUp).Row it works fine and gives a number


why is that? please advise

Range references are relative, so if your data is in A17:D30, then that is your usedrange. So, 1048576 rows down from row 17 is beyond excel's row limit and you'll get an error.

Try: ActiveSheet.Cells(rows.count, 5).End(xlUp).Row
great thanks a lot !
