Default Counting rows in Excel worksheet

Hey folks, I'm back for some more punishment.

I've an application that must know how many rows in a worksheet are populated with data. Some cells in any given row are expected to not contain data. The first row that contains no data is my endpoint.

What I keep receiving is an Overflow message, presumably because I must be counting every...single...row, until I run out of memory.

Here's my snippet, and from a worksheet that has 2 rows, each containing various columns of data up to 10 columns:


    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
1 green blue pink
2 one two three
3 a b c

    Dim cnDB As DAO.Database
    Dim rst As DAO.Recordset

    Dim xlsAPP As Excel.Application
    Dim xlsWBK As Excel.Workbook
    Dim xlsWST As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim strPath As String

    If cnt = 1 Then
        msgbox "<placeholder>"
        Set xlsAPP = New Excel.Application
        strPath = "C:\MyPath\" & "file1.xls"
        xlsAPP.Workbooks.Open (strPath)
        Set xlsWBK = xlsAPP.ActiveWorkbook
        Set xlsWST = xlsWBK.Sheets("WS1")

        Dim strstorage As Integer

        With xlsWST
            Do While Not IsNull(.Application.Rows.Cells(, "B"))
                strstorage = .Application.Rows.Count
        End With
Thanks for any helpful input.

disclaimer: I will only be using DAO.
