    Dynamic range from which to use =SUMPRODUCT()

    I need to check if a name falls within a validation range. For that I'm using =SUMPRODUCT(--(D2=NamedRange). Now, I need to make sure that the NamedRange has no blanks, or it screws it all up. But the data change on a frequent basis, which is usually just appending or deleting a name from the range. The range from which names may be appended or deleted is 3 columns and ~30 rows. I tried an array formula of {=INDEX($A$1:$A$10,SMALL(IF($A$1:$A$10<>"",ROW($A$1:$A$10)),ROWS($A$1:$A1)))}, but that returns #NUM ! errors whenever it is too long, and so the SUMPRODUCT() doesn't return any data, only the #NUM ! error. How can I do this?

    Re: Dynamic range from which to use =SUMPRODUCT()

    Have you tried using a Dynamic Named Range?

    If that doesn't solve try uploading a representative Excel workbook sample of what you have. Please include samples of what you have tried that does not work and hand typed examples of desired output.

    If you are not familiar with how to do this:

    To attach a file to your post: (Please no pics or screenshots ... saves retyping data.),
    • be sure to desensitize the data
    • click “Go Advanced” (next to Post Quick Reply – bottom right),
    • scroll down until you see “Manage Attachments”, click that,
    • click “Browse”.
    • select your file(s)
    • click “Upload”
    • click “Close window”
    • click “Submit Reply”

    The file name will appear at the bottom of your reply.

    If you upload a representative sample workbook it will be easier to explain in context. Please see instructions post #2.

    I tried to do that. I click on the Attachment icon and I get a thin beige bar with no visible buttons.

    If you tried the paperclip icon that hasn't worked for some time.

    Follow the instructions post #2 exactly. That's the "new" way. It's never failed me yet.

    Re: Dynamic range from which to use =SUMPRODUCT()

    There is nothing "wrong" with the named range 'tt'. The formula in column C just needs to have IFERROR wrapped around it.

    Try array entering this in C1 and fill down.

    Rule 08: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

    Your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

    Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question. If you have fewer than 10 posts here, you will not be able to post a link, but you must still tell us where else you have asked the question.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).

    If you have less than 10 posts, do not try to copy and paste the link. Instead, type the link out in your thread.

    No further help to be offered, please, until the OP has complied with this request.
