    Re: Copying cell named and keep the name

    You can drag a named cell to a new location and keep the name but you can't copy the cell and paste into a new location and retain the name in the copy of the cell. The name will remain with the original cell.

    If you select a named cell and use Ctrl + X and then paste the cell in a new location, the original is deleted and the copy has the name.

    Thanks for reply newdoverman!

    This was a bad news. I will keep searching a way to copy names. I read something about VBA, maybe there is a solution!

    Just copy a cell named and keep the name.

    For example: A1 = ValorVenda, I want to copy A1 to B1 and keep the name, resulting B1 = ValorVenda as A1 = ValorVenda

    Re: Copying cell named and keep the name

    You can edit the name definition in the Name Manager to address new locations, expand ranges etc.

    Knowing what exactly you are trying to do would help.

    OK I *think* I understand.

    1. click the cell you want
    2. click-hold on the small black square on the lower-right corner of that cell, and drag sideways
