    IF statement...If InputBox value equals any value within a certain named range...

    Hey I am trying to make an IF statement as part of a lookup and filter macro for a guest list, and I am trying to get any value within a Named range (Its called ActualGuestSurname)

    How do I make the IF statment compare the input to any value in this named range?

    Here is the macro so far (Line I can't figure out in red, in my own words)

    Sub Macro1()

    Dim intGuestSurname As String
    strGuestSurname = InputBox("Enter Guest Surname")

    If strGuestSurname = NamedRange("ActualGuestSurname") Then

    Application.Goto Reference:="GuestSurname"
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = strGuestSurname
    Range("GuestDatabase").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, CriteriaRange:= _
    Range("Criteria"), Unique:=False

    MsgBox "That Guest is not on record", vbCritical

    End If

    End Sub
