Vba To Change Named Ranges

May 12, 2007

I was given the

What I am looking to do is have a range of cells that I have named to be used in a data validation for a drop down box. I have named the cells and would like to have the user name the cells by typing in the name into one cell.

For example

Cells F10:F14 are named "orange" right now (typed in cell F9)
I would like the user to be able to change the name of the cells to whatever they want by changing the cell in F9 - i.e. "banana" and the range is automatically named banana so the data validation can search for Banana instead.


Dim oldName

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Dim Rng As Range
Set Rng = Range("F9")
If Not Intersect(Target, Rng) Is Nothing Then
Range(oldName).Name = Range("F9")

This Code works great for 1 range - but I have 30 - I can't seem to figure out how to copy it etc for the other 30 ranges.


Named Ranges Reference Change?

Change "refer to" in Named Range. I have a named range myrange referring to A1:A5. I have a condition for B1, if B1= annual then myrange should refer to C1:C5 and not A1:A5..

Change PT Data Source Using Named Ranges?

Feb 9, 2012

I have a worksheet with many pivot tables and (eventually) 2 data sheets. I run a macro that creates the first pivot table and copies it 17 times. Then, using Call, I would like it to create the second data table, "Credits" (I'm working on that, but that's a seperate issue). Finally, I want one of the existing PT to change to the new data, "Credits".

I'm using an named range and that seems to be where I'm breaking.

Sub Remove_Credits()
Dim CSD As Worksheet

Named Ranges From VBA

Dec 30, 2008

I have some named ranges that refer to 5 pieces of data organized into a row. For example, the name MyNamedRange might refer to $C$5:$C$10.

I am trying to loop through each column and get the values in MyNamedRange, then change corresponding values in a different named range. However, when I try to use Offset to access the subsequent columns of MyNamedRange, it doesn't work. It only gets the value of the first column right, the rest return <EMPTY>.

Using Named Ranges.

Jul 17, 2006

How do I go about using named ranges instead of cell names(ie A4:A9)

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
Dim lngRow As Long
Dim intIndex As Integer
UserForm1.ComboBox1.Clear 'Clear combobox
lngRow = 2 Do While Sheet1.Range("a" & lngRow).Value <> ""
For intIndex = 0 To UserForm1.ComboBox1.ListCount - 1
If UserForm1.ComboBox1.List(intIndex) = Sheet1.Range("a" & lngRow).Value
Goto NextRow
End If
Next intIndex
UserForm1.ComboBox1.AddItem Sheet1.Range("a" & lngRow).Value
lngRow = lngRow + 1
End Sub

I wanted to change "a" to the defined range "search"?

Using Named Ranges Across Different Options?

Jan 28, 2014

At the moment I have to click in the cell and then look at the cells used and look across to the title of the rows.

So for example, performance = D3*D4*D5*D6

I would like, performance = vehicles*availabliity*utilisation*TKM.

That is easy if I have just 1 option. But what if I have 3 options? Naming each cell would be a way to do it but pretty laborious, is there a 'smart' way to use named ranges here?

Duplicating Named Ranges

Feb 12, 2010

I'm creating a KPI spreadsheet which utilizes named ranges to allow for Dynamic charting. I've created the first data input sheet for one of the 10 areas being KPIed. The sheet has 60 named ranges in it.

The goal is to duplicate the existing sheet (Area 1A) 10 times and adjust the named ranges and formulas within the named ranges according to the sheet names.

Is there a way to accomplish this without having to manually recreate or edit every named range for each new sheet?

SumIF Using Named Ranges

Jun 16, 2014

I want a sumIF function (based on three criteria) to fill the values of cells in a column so long as there are values in the cells in the column before that one. I was working with trying a loop, but have been shown a faster way is using the With function.

There are four named ranges that all exist on a separate sheet in the file: Crude, Location, Year and Volume. Based on the first three columns of the file I wish to have an output for the sum of volume based on crude, location and year.

Right now, my output simply returns the total sum of the "volume" range in each cell in the output column.

For example, if total sum of values in the volume column is 100 then my output column currently looks like:

Vlookup With Named Ranges

Jan 14, 2009

I am having problems getting the code below to follow my intentions. I have 2 files. I have a temporary file that holds all the data that I need. I have a destination file that needs to have data copied into it. In the temp file, I have data for several dates and product types. What I intend to do is to do a vlookup in VBA to look for the date and the product type in the temp file and copy the appropriate data to the destination file. I have numerous named ranges both in my temp file and my destination file. For the code below, I wanted to make a loop to find the date in the temp file that is listed in the destination file. Once this is done, I wanted to find the product type in the temp file that is listed in the destination file. If both conditions exist, then copy a certain range from the temp file to the destination file. My intention is evident in the code, but I don’t think that I am putting in the correct “code format”.

I'm trying to make my worksheet generate a bunch of named ranges whenever it is activated. However, I'm getting a "Not a valid name" error on the line in red.

That line is very similar to the line above, and tends to work once (the first time around the loop). After that, I get the errors I mentioned.

Mirroring Named Ranges

Aug 25, 2009

The worksheet contains 20 different datasets which are divided into separate 30 x 10 grids, all of which help comprise a larger 300 x 20 grid. I have defined each smaller grid/dataset as its own named range. Originally the entire dataset started in A1, but I am shifting it dataset down by 40 lines to create space to work at the top of my workbook.

I am wanting to create a data validation list in A1, then have cells A3:J32 populate with the named range I select in A1. However I also want this populated dataset at the top of the sheet to be a mirror -- not a copy.

Therefore once I have the data in my range available A3:J32, anything I manipulate would be mirrored in the original range in the lower portion of the workbook.

Countifs With Named Ranges?

Jul 19, 2012

I have some named ranges and am trying to do a "Countifs" based off the named ranges. But Excel is giving me obvious incorrect data (my fault, not Excel's). I can't really post a pic of the issue, hopefully it's an obvious error on my part.

For instance

SpecialPart is a named range consisting of part numbers that I want to count seperately from all others.

PartNumber is a named range of all parts shipped for a period.

I used countifs becuase I am also checking by month. The month part works fine because I use it in other countifs. It's just this one that isn't working for me.

My formula looks like this;


As mentioned, the month part of the formula works in other calculations, but the Part/SpecialPart calculation keeps returning a "1" even though there are multiple instances of a match for each month. A manual count of January showed about 100 lines that should have been counted.

SUMIFS With Named Ranges

Sep 12, 2012

I'm trying to learn more about the SUMIFS and COUNTIFS functions and am practicing with some hypothetical data. I have data about the number of gallons of paint sold in 4 regions.

In my hypothetical situation, I need to find out the number of gallons sold in the Northeast region during the month of August.

I have named ranges for most categories: "Date," "Gallons_Sold," "PaintColors," and "Region."

I am able to get a correct response if I use

=SUMIFS(Gallons_Sold,Region,"NE",Date,"August 21")

But it is only info. for a single date. I need to get a total for the entire month of August.

=SUMIFS(Gallons_Sold,Region,"NE",Date,"August") returns zero. How do I get SUMIFS to evaluate "Date" for all August dates?

Named Ranges And Charting

Dec 5, 2012

I am having an issue with dynamic charting using named ranges in excel. I quite often create dynamic charts using IF and OFFSET formulas to check conditions in order to create charts of data based on user inputs.

The issue I am having is with linking multiple tables of data in a single named range. In order to make this spreadsheet easy to maintain I am trying to take 3 separate databases and link the spreadsheets through named ranges. The formula I have written is as follows:


For context this is;

=VLOOKUP(VALUE(LEFT(OFFSET("Serial number I am referencing",1,0,"Qty of rows containing data",1),6)),"Value I want to return from separate table",10,FALSE)

[The formatting of the serial number between the two sheets is slightly different but they share the first 6 digits (hence the wrapped VALUE and LEFT formulas).]

This formula is working perfectly except that it doesn't store the entire data table in a single cell, it only returns a single value. If I enter the formula into a cell and drag it down it returns all the information correctly, however if I create a named range using the formula and try to chart it only the first value returned is charted.

Any way to modify the formula to store the entire data array in the single cell value so it will chart when used as a named range?

SUMPRODUCT Using Named Ranges

Mar 27, 2014

I am using the SUMPRODUCT formula below and it seems to be working

=SUMPRODUCT(('Attendance Data'!H:H="XXX")*('Attendance Data'!D:D="YYY"))

This, as I understand it is counting the number of times a row contains the text "XXX" in column H and also contains the text "YYY" in column D.

This seems to work for me.

Now my problem is when I want to change the formula to search for the text "XXX" in column H and also any text that apperas in a named range on another sheet in column D. The named range is called "New_Starters"

I am using the below formula which is returning N/A's.

=SUMPRODUCT(('Attendance Data'!D:D=New_Starters)*('Attendance Data'!H:H="XXX"))

Using Hlookup With Named Ranges?

May 28, 2014

I have 8 branch's data (on 8 separate sheets) which I have Named (in excel) by referring to the range for that Branch's data. My named ranges are:



On the first sheet of the workbook I would like to be able to select a branch from a dropdown and then the sheet should display selected data only for that branch using a Hlookup function (all the data for each branch are in identical sized ranges and are ordered the same).

I have tried the following:

Cell A1 = dropdown list of available branches (ct,dbn,pe....etc) - as an example choose "ct"
Cell A2 = concatenate (a1,"_lookup_act") - and I have named cell A2 as "which_branch" - and in this example the data in A2 would be "ct_lookup_act"

Cell A5 = hlookup("Mar 14",which_branch,2,false)


the hlookup function returns #N/A because it is looking for "Mar 14" in the range defined by "which_branch" - ie cell A2, instead of looking in the range defined by "ct_lookup_act" (as an example).

Referencing With Named Ranges

Ok I have been trying to figure this out for way to long. Say I have a list of values in A1:A4. I have named this range MyRange. If I wanted to refer to this range somewhere else in the workbook and enter =MyRange it will only work provided the "=MyRange" is in the same rows as the original data.

For example if I enter MyRange in cells C1 through C4 it would mirror the data in column A. But if I enter MyRange in C5:C8 I would get a #Value error. Does anyone have any ideas to make this more of an absolute reference.

Basically anywhere I enter MyRange into a cell I want to see A1. If i drag that formula down I want to see A2, A3, A4, etc....

So, in the beginning myRange will always consist of a single cell, which later on will be the 1st cell of the correctly sized range. While the macro runs, the correct size of the range is calculated, and at that point the range has to be resized, say to 'n' rows by 'm' columns, with the original cell as 1st cell.
