I am in Excel 2003

I have an alphabetized list of names in column A.
Through a button, the user will enter a name. I want to loop through the list, find the name and place the cursor in the adjacent cell.

Try with a button from the Controls toolbar

Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Found As Range
Set Found = Columns("A").Find(what:=InputBox("Enter name"), LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
If Not Found Is Nothing Then Found.Offset(, 1).Select
End Sub

Exit Sub
