Named ranges

  • I am doing a spreadsheet that has a sheet with some stock on it. I have a column entitled 'Product' which contains motherboard products. I have named that range as motherboards.


    I have a macro that allows the user to add an item to the motherboard list from a separate sheet; but the named range doesn't continue with the addition.


    How can I make it so the named range expands with every addtion to the sheet?


    I am really stuck so any help would be appreciated!

  • Welcome to Ozgrid


    Assuming your Product column is in Sheet1 column A, you would insert the following formula into the refers to box of the Insert>Name>Define menu


    =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,0,0,COUNTA(Sheet1!$A:$A),1)


    You just need to adjust that to suit your sheet/column names


    Be aware that the column can contain no blank cells for this to work.


    Hope it helps

  • My product entries start at B2 and go down. When I use the macro, it inserts a row between the headings and the 1st entry, so would this still work?
