This is one topic that can add both structure and flexibility to your Excel models. These techniques can be applied to most Excel files including reporting models, budgets and financial models. Range names have many advantages. Range names can

  • make formulas faster to create and easier to read, understand and maintain
  • reduce the need for absolute and mixed references (fewer $ signs in formulas)
  • define input areas
  • allow you to easily navigate in a large workbook
  • make working with macros more reliable
  • create dynamic ranges that expand and contract as data is added or removed
  • create robust linking between files

The session will cover

  • Naming conventions – what they are and how to use them to simplify formula creation
  • Non-formula uses for range names – create an unbreakable hyperlink
