Hello,
I created a scenario summary and in the Result Cells column, all I get is a cell reference.
Is there any way I can do a look up of that cell number located in the other tab so that the "Defined Name" of that cell displays where I wrote the "?"?
I've been searching the web for days, no luck, maybe I am not asking the right question, but I think it should be doable, right?
I also downloaded the Kutools toolbar but I don't think that would help.
PS: I don't know how to do macros, so if your solution involves a macro, please keep that in mind when explaining to me. I am willing to try anything as long as the steps are clear :)

Thanks so much in advance!

Laure

My apologies, I didn't know you 2 were related and I tried to edit this post here to make it clearer and attach the screenshot I forgot to attach, but couldn't figure out how to. Can't edit and the only way to add a picture is through a url.

So yes, for a better written question and a screenshot, please see: https://www.excelforum.com/excel-formulas-and-functions/1242302-display-the-defined-name-of-a-cell-in-a-cell-when-the-cell-reference-is-in-a-cell.html#post4958964

Thanks so much in advance for your help.

There is no need to delete the post.
All we (and other sites) ask is that when cross posting you include a link to the other site.

I can't tell what you're trying to do ...

A cell somehow comes to contain a cell address (how?), and you want to know the name of that cell, assuming it is a single-cell named range?

How?: Well, I used a Scenario Manager, and that cell $F$102 is one of the values that changes when running the Scenario.
As you can see, many cells do change and when I look at this spreadsheet, I am totally confused, not remembering what $F$102, from the PPM3... tab is about.

Do you see what I mean now?

Maybe.

When you create the scenario, why not just use the names rather than the cell addresses?

Hello, thanks so much for helping.

Well, it's not an option. The way the Scenario Manager works is that you click on the cells that you want to see displayed in the Scenario Summary once it runs the various scenarios, and then it just displays that cell reference on the Scenario Summary table, just like it shows here $F$102 etc...
