Excel 2010: Using Named Ranges and the Name Manager

For larger spreadsheets, Range Names are more convenient than scroll bars.  To name an individual cell or block of cells highlight the cell or cells first, click on the Name Box, type in an appropriate name, and press the Enter key. (Range names do not accept spaces.)

Range Name list and selected areaTo find the block again, use the drop-down list in the Name Box and click on the name. Alternatively use the GoTo command (Ctrl+G or F5). Note: Range names can also be used in formulae instead of their cell reference equivalent.

GoTo windowTo edit or delete range names, use the Name Manager from the Formulas tab. Note that the delete option only deletes the range name, and not the contents of the cells in that range.
