Naming ranges on multiple worksheets


J

Jim

I have a workbook with multiple worksheets, the worksheets are structured
identical to each other. I need to name certain ranges in each of the
worksheets. On the first worksheet, I was able to name the ranges without
difficulity, however when I attempt to name the ranges on the worksheet
number 2, it throws me back to sheet 1. The range name that I entered on
sheet 2 was not accepted, the name box is still showing the cell number. Can
anyone assist?

Using Excel 2003.

Thanks,

Jim

One method

On sheet1 Insert>Name>Define MyName

Refers to: =INDIRECT("A1:F20")

Note: won't show up in NameBox or in Edit>Go To or F5

Must be typed into refedit dialog.

Use local/worksheet level names.

Select the range
and include the sheet name in the namebox when you create the name, like:

'Sheet 99'!myNameHere
