Next used cell in a column Selection.End(xlDown).Select

I need to get the number of the next row not empty in the column, in VBA I could do something like:
and then get the row of the selected cell.
How can I do that using XlsIO component?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Sam,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

XlsIO does not have direct methods to achieve the functionalities like ‘Selection.End(xlDown).Select’. But, this can be achieved through a workaround and we have shared the workaround sample in the following link. Kindly try this and let us know if this helps.

Please let us know if you have any queries.

Hi Nivas,

Greetings from Syncfusion.

We have prepared the sample to fetch the last cell. Kindly try this and let us know if it helps.

Code snippet:

FileStream inputStream = new FileStream("Sample.xlsx", FileMode.Open);

IWorkbook workbook = excelEngine.Excel.Workbooks.Open(inputStream);

IWorksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];              


IRange cell = worksheet.Range["A1"];

IRange usedRange = worksheet.UsedRange;

var lastcell = "";

int col = cell.Column;

int lastRow;


for (int row = 1;  row <= usedRange.LastRow; row++)


     if (!worksheet[row, col].IsBlank)


          lastcell = worksheet[row, col].AddressLocal;

          lastRow = row;



The complete sample can be downloaded from the below link.
