Dynamic Named Range not listed as Named Range

It is my understanding that dynamic named ranges using the OFFSET() Function are not listed in the named range drop-down list on the toolbar. Is there a way to get around this?

I need to be able to select the dyanmic named range in order to clear the range and paste an updated list in its place without leaving leftovers at the bottom.

I also have Equations to the right of the list so using the shortcut End+Shift+Home does not work.

If anyone can help solve this problem that would be great!

Thanks!

Welcome to the board...

Nope, dynamic named ranges will not appear in the named range list..

However, you can still type the name in the "Name" box to the left of formula bar and press enter.

Jonmo,

What about using a change event to re-define static ranges, do you think that would be viable or resource hungry compared to the offset method?

I would think re-defining the ranges whenever data changes would be too much overhead.

Too much trouble for what is essentially a minor nuisance.

Thanks Jon, I had a feeling that might be the case, thought it easier to get a professional opinion than to create a test workbook.
