Naming cells in Excel

We create Range Names in Excel for cells that we might like to either:

Quickly Navigate to , or to use in functions like Vlookup.

If you select a range of cells and include the heading labels, however if the heading label starts with a number ie: 2017 Budget Excel will add the underscore.

  1. Select the cells – include the heading
  2. Formulas tab, Define Names Group
  3. Select Create from Selection
  4. This will Automatically detect the heading name and use it for its range name. However generally you can not start a range name with a number so Excel will compensate by adding an underscore at the beginning. ie:_2017_Budget.
