How to list named ranges in Excel?
Naming cell ranges is very useful for formulas, which can help us understand formulas easily. Sometimes there are too many named ranges in workbooks, and we might not remember the exact names. Here provides several methods to view the defined name list in Microsoft Excel.
- List named ranges in Name Manager dialog box
- List named ranges in Use in Formula drop down menu
- List named ranges in Name box
- List named ranges in Go To dialog box
- List named ranges in Navigation Pane
Usually we can edit defined names with Name Manager command. Of course we can view all defined names within the Named Manager dialog box. After clicking the Name Manger button under Formulas tab, it displays the Name Manger dialog box. And it lists all named ranges within it. See screenshot:
Apart from Name Manager, you can also view all defined named with Use in Formula command under Formula tab.
Just clicking the Use in Formula button, it lists all named ranges. See screenshot:
At the end of Use in Formula's drop down list, it's Paste Names command item. This item opens the Paste Name dialog box, which lists all named ranges too. After clicking the Paste List button, it will paste the list of named ranges with their cell references to the active cells.
Note: the Paste Name dialog box can be opened by pressing F3 key, too.
We can also view the defined names from Name Box in the formula bar. Just click the arrow button in the Name box, it will list all defined named in a drop down menu. See screenshot:
Not only the Name Manger command and Use in Formula command, the Go To command also lists all defined names. See screenshot
