Excel/VBA: Copy used range

Question
Hi Tom,

I Found this code in an answer you gave to someone else:

Sub copyData()
Dim r as Range, lastrow as Long
With Worksheets("Sheet1")
Set r = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), _
.Cells(.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp)) _
   .EntireRow
End With
With Worksheets("Sheet2")
lastrow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row - 1
.Cells(lastrow, "A").Resize(r.Rows.Count, 1).EntireRow.Insert
r.Copy .Cells(lastrow, "A")
End With
End Sub

It works well for me also. However, instead of copying the entire row, how can this be tweaked so that it only copies each row from A:R?

Thanks,
Doug

Answer
Doug,

This should do what the original macro did, but only copy columns A:R for the specified rows

Sub copyData()
Dim r as Range, lastrow as Long
With Worksheets("Sheet1")
Set r = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), _
.Cells(.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp)) _
.EntireRow.Cells
Set r = r.Resize(,18)
End With
With Worksheets("Sheet2")
lastrow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row - 1
.Cells(lastrow, "A").Resize(r.Rows.Count, 1).EntireRow.Insert
r.Copy .Cells(lastrow, "A")
End With
End Sub
