The Go To command will navigate us to any specific cell or cell ranges, only if you remember the position of a cell or cell range.

Secondly, enter the exact cells position in Reference. It can be a single cell address such as C13, or cell range as $C$143:$F$161;
After clicking the OK, it will locate the specific cell or cell ranges in worksheet.
If you have named cell range in current workbook, the names will be listed in the Go To dialog box. Pick out one of names, and click the OK, it will navigate the named cell range.
By using names, you can make formulas easier and more understandable. In addition, names can also help us skip to the named cell range immediately if you remember the names you defined.
