    Having the user specify a column when running a macro

    Hi All,

    I have a very simple macro that I use to highlight duplicates in a column...

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.

    In this example, the macro is applied to column A. Is there some way that I could have a user be prompted for which column they wish to check for duplicates when they run the macro? Thanks in advance.
