I got a function for search used range of Last Cell of data to conver it to sub for

how to convert it to Sub Procedures??

Code:

```
Public Function GetLastCell(InRange As range, SearchOrder As XlSearchOrder, _
Optional sheet As Worksheet, Optional ProhibitEmptyFormula As Boolean = False) As range
'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
' GetLastCell
' By Chip Pearson, chip@cpearson.com, www.cpearson.com
'
' This returns the last used cell in a worksheet or range. If InRange
' is a single cell, the last cell of the entire worksheet if found. If
' InRange contains two or more cells, the last cell in that range is
' returned.
' If SearchOrder is xlByRows (= 1), the last cell is the last
' (right-most) non-blank cell on the last row of data in the
' worksheet's UsedRange. If SearchOrder is xlByColumns
' (= 2), the last cell is the last (bottom-most) non-blank cell in the
' last (right-most) column of the worksheet's UsedRange. If SearchOrder
' is xlByColumns + xlByRows (= 3), the last cell is the intersection of
' the last row and the last column. Note that this cell may not contain
' any value.
' If SearchOrder is anything other than xlByRows, xlByColumns, or
' xlByRows+xlByColumns, an error 5 is raised.
'
' Sheet is an optional specifier of which sheet to search. If omitted,
' the ActiveSheet is used.
'
' ProhibitEmptyFormula indicates how to handle the case in which the
' last cell is a formula that evaluates to an empty string. If this setting
' is omitted for False, the last cell is allowed to be a formula that
' evaluates to an empty string. If this setting is True, the last cell
' must be either a static value or a formula that evaluates to a non-empty
' string. The default is False, allowing the last cell to be a formula
' that evaluates to an empty string.
'''''''''''''''''''''''''
' Example:
' a b c
' d e
' f g
'
' If SearchOrder is xlByRows, the last cell is 'g'. If SearchOrder is
' xlByColumns, the last cell is 'e'. If SearchOrder is xlByRows+xlByColumns,
' the last cell is the intersection of the row containing 'g' and the column
' containing 'e'. This cell has no value in this example.

hope your co-operation for understand things ..

for further work..
