can an Expert assist me with this, I am sure it is simple but obviously not for me.

I am using the below code to select the current range:

Range(Range("A98"), Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell)).Select

I then want to remove all duplicates from column B within that range [without using a named range like

ActiveSheet.Range("$A$98:$AB$103").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=2, Header:= _
        xlNo

and then I want to sort on column B

Row 98 is the header row for the Range and the number of rows below 98 will vary every time we run the report.

Thanks

to this

myRange.RemoveDuplicates Columns:=2, Header:=xlNo

And it works

Thanks Rgonzo
