So, I was going to post a question about how to do this, but while typing my question, I had an idea. And it works. So, I'm posting this in case someone searches for how to do this in the future.

I have numerous workbooks that import lots a a data text file each day. Each time there's an import, it creates a named range called "ExternalData_x" Given that I'm going to have a full year of imports for each workbook, I didn't want to have 365 named ranges, so I was working out how to delete only these ExterenalData named ranges. Here's how to do this:

VBA Code:
Sub DeleteNamedRanges()

Dim rngName As Name

    For Each rngName In ActiveWorkbook.Names
        If rngName.Name Like "*ExternalData*" Then
            rngName.Delete
        End If
    Next
End Sub
