    Changing named ranges

    Hi there,

    Consider an example where I have Defined a named range called "garry" which covers cells A1:E5. How can I get excel to update/change the named range to A1:E10 if I paste five more rows of data into the sheet.

    I want to do this without going into Insert > Name > Define etc and changing it manually.

    Hope all that made sense.

    Thanks
    Gazzr

    Hi

    Define the named range as a dynamic one, p.e.

    =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,,,COUNTA(Sheet1!$A:$A),1)

    This assumes, you don't have any entries in column A, except your list (or
    only some fixed number of other entries, p.e. column heading), and you never
    have any gaps in this range.

    An example of definition for same range, when entries start from row 3, and
    you have a heading in cell A1:
    =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,2,,COUNTA(Sheet1!$A:$A)-1,1)

    Take a look at http://www.contextures.com/xlNames01.html about dynamically
    named ranges.
