Part of formula with named range is missing (?)

    Part of formula with named range is missing (?)

    This is a case of my having figured something out, implemented it, and then forgotten what I did.

    So I have a column of dates to which I add a row with a new date weekly. The first date in the list has been named "FirstDate." At the bottom of the column, there is a Total, and the formula is "LastDate-FirstDate." The problem is that I can't FIND what "LastDate" refers to. If I press Ctrl-G, "LastDate" is not listed, only "FirstDate." However, the formula is working! So clearly there's a LastDate. I've tried Trace Precedents, and it selects the entire column, but I still don't see "LastDate."

    I'm trying to set up a similar sheet with a new set of dates, and the formula doesn't work.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    look in insert/name/define instead

    Try this. press F5, then enter LastDate it should take you to that cell (hmm duh CTRL G is teh same as F5)

    If that doesnt work, I cant remember where it is in 2003, but you need to look in the range name manager and see if it is listed there
    (2007 = formulas/define names/name manager)
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
