✔ Best Answer
Try this code, make sure you set a reference to 'Microsoft Excel xx.x Object Library'

where xx.x is the version installed, I have office 2010 on my machine so it is shown as

'Microsoft Excel 14.0 Object Library'

The issue you have is that the syntax used is for Excel and therefore Word does not understand what Cell is, you can either define cell as Excel.Cells or use my code below which does the same thing but in a better way.

Sub GetLastRow()
    Dim iExcel As Object
    Dim lastrow As Long
    Dim Range As Excel.Range
    Set iExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    Let iExcel.Visible = True
    iExcel.workbooks.Open ("D:\test\TestTableList.xlsx")
    lastrow = iExcel.Worksheets("TableList").Range("A" & iExcel.Worksheets("TableList").Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Debug.Print lastrow
End Sub

Thank you for your assistant.

I checked my Excel VBA config(VBE > Tools > References > Microsoft Word 14.0 Object Library is enable) . And I also get the TableList row properly.

I test your code and get the compiler error at Dim Range As Excel.Range.

Because my Windows environment is Traditional Chinese. So I translate the error message as below:
" User defined type net configed" I hope you may understand.

Could you tell me how to correct it.

Thank you very much!!!

The problem is you need the EXCEL object library as well as WORD


'Microsoft WORD14.0 Object Library'

but also add

'Microsoft EXCEL 14.0 Object Library'

I add the 'Microsoft EXCEL 14.0 Object Library' at the WORD VBA Library, it worked.

that is we need to add 'Microsoft EXCEL 14.0 Object Library' and 'Microsoft WORD14.0 Object Library' togather.

Thank you very much!!!
