    One very direct way
    [vba]Dim lastrow As Long
    Dim selectnum As Long

    lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
    Select Case True
    Case lastrow > 20: selectnum = 20
    Case lastrow > 10: selectnum = 10
    Case lastrow > 5: selectnum = lastrow
    End Select

    Cells(lastrow - selectnum + 1, "A").Resize(selectnum).Select
    [/vba]
