    Pretty sure it will always sort alphanumerically and you can't change that.

    Hi,

    By 'range drop down' I assume you mean that you have a Data Validation which uses the range name.
    You'll need to first sort them in the order you want if you want the drop down reflect your order.

    I think he's talking about the "name box" which as Domski stated is set to alphabetical. If you are talking about a data validation box, VBA can be used to rearraign them when new ranges are added to the list.
