For Loop macro in Excel

For Loop macro in Excel

For Loop macro in Excel

If anyone can help modify this macro, I would greatly appreciated it.  Thnks in advance,

The procedure below will format(put a line through) a range in Excel sheet, and it will loop and do the same for every 400 rows below.  The problem is the procedure below will loop and format not a RANGE(that I wanted), but the whole ROW.  I tried to change the row to range function, but couldn't figure it out.  



Dim hRows As Long
Const Jump1 As Long = 400
Const LastRow As Long = 18945 'last row to loop

    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
    With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft)
        .LineStyle = xlContinuous
        .Weight = xlMedium
        .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
    End With   
    Selection.Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = xlNone
    'the loop
    For hRows = 21 To LastRow Step Jump1
    Rows(CStr(hRows + Jump1)).Select
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
    With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft)
        .LineStyle = xlContinuous
        .Weight = xlMedium
        .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
    End With
    Selection.Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = xlNone
  Next hRows

End Sub

RE: For Loop macro in Excel

Your line:

Rows(CStr(hRows + Jump1)).Select

selects by rows

you need some that looks like:
range(cells(hRows + Jump1, 89),cells(hRows + Jump1,93)).select

where 89 should correspond to your column DK and 93 should correspond to column DO
