How to quickly get address of named range in Excel?

Range name is a common feature that we usually used in our workbook, but, here, I wonder if there was a way to show the full address of a named range. For example, I have a named range called “domains” in a worksheet, and the range address would be $A$2:$A$9. How could I quickly get the address of a ranged name in Excel?

Supposing, I have a range data which has the range name “domains” as following screenshot shown, and now, I can extract the address A2:A9 of the range name as following steps:

doc-get-range-name-address-1

1. Enter this long formula =ADDRESS(ROW(domains),COLUMN(domains))&":"&ADDRESS(ROW(domains)+ROWS(domains)-1,COLUMN(domains)+COLUMNS(domains)-1) into a blank cell, see screenshot:

doc-get-range-name-address-1

Note: In the above formula, domains is the range name that I want to use, you can change it to your own range name.

2. Then press Enter key, and you will get the cell address of the ranged name.

End Function

3. Then save and close this code, go back to your worksheet, in a blank cell, please enter this formula =Namerefersto("domains") into a blank cell, see screenshot:

doc-get-range-name-address-1

Note: In the above formula, domains is the range name that you want to use, you can change it to your need, and you must put the name between in quotes.

4. Press Enter key, and it returns the sheet name with the address for your specified ranged name.
