Remove Absolute Range

In code it references,
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$A$8569").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:= _xlYes

How can I tell this to RemoveDups on whatever is in column A?

Please advise and thanks. -R-


Sub ZSHORTV2Step3ReplaceMM17DupsFromNewZSHORTV2()
'
' ZSHORTV2Step3 Macro
'

'
    Sheets("MM17NoDups").Select
    Columns("A:A").Select
    Selection.ClearContents
    Sheets("ZSHORTV2DataPrevious").Select
    Columns("C:C").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Sheets("MM17NoDups").Select
    Columns("A:A").Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
    Selection.ColumnWidth = 15
'    Columns("A:A").Select
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$A$8569").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:= _
        xlYes
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    Sheets("ZSHORTV2DataCurrent").Select
    MsgBox ("MM17NoDups Updated")
    Range("A1").Select
End Sub

Change Line 20 to 2 lines as below:

i = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$A$" & i).RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:= _
        xlYes

Thanks it worked.  Can I extend the question just a little?  After the process runs it does not have the range of only dups selected on the MM17NoDups...  Is there a way to have it finish by selecting the range after the dups are removed?  instead of having the total cells looked at hightlighted?  -R-

On the particular sheet, is there data in column B as well?

If not:

Range("A1").Select
CurrentRegion.Select

Should select the data in column A

Thanks

ActiveSheet.Range("A:A").RemoveDuplicates 1, xlYes

Selection.CurrentRegion.Select

to select the range once done.
ActiveSheet.Range("A:A").RemoveDuplicates 1, xlYes
  Range(Range("A2"), Range("A2").End(xlDown)).Select
