You may give this a try...
Sub VLookup()
Dim cell As Range, LookupCell As Range, LookupRange As Range, Target As Range
Dim ColIndex As Integer
Set cell = ActiveCell
On Error Resume Next

Set LookupCell = Application.InputBox("Select cell with Lookup value.", Type:=8)
If LookupCell Is Nothing Then
    MsgBox "You didn't select the cell with Lookup value.", vbExclamation
    Exit Sub
End If

Set LookupRange = Application.InputBox("Select Lookup Table Range.", Type:=8)
If LookupRange Is Nothing Then
    MsgBox "You didn't select the Lookup Range.", vbExclamation
    Exit Sub
End If

ColIndex = Application.InputBox("Please specify the column index from the Lookup Range " & LookupRange.Address(0, 0), Type:=1)
If ColIndex = 0 Then
    MsgBox "You didn't specify the Column Index.", vbExclamation
    Exit Sub
End If

Set Target = LookupRange.Columns(1).Find(what:=LookupCell.Value, lookat:=xlWhole)

If Not Target Is Nothing Then
    cell.Value = Target.Offset(0, ColIndex - 1).Value
    MsgBox "The Lookup value " & LookupCell.Value & " was not found in the range " & LookupRange.Columns(1).Address & ".", vbExclamation
End If
End Sub
