Hi everyone. I have a membership data base in Excel, and I've worked out how to do a mail merge using Word and the Names and addresses contained in my Excel file. As per the help file instructions, i've named the range where my names and addresses are contained, but next year my list could be bigger or smaller than this year, is there a way to have the named range dynamic to include only rows that contain data? Needs to be a formula, and has to be in Excel

my Column headers starting in A1:D1 are First name Last name Address Postcode and this year go to Row 1005, and i've named the range MyNa
es for the purposes of doing the renewal mailing

thanks

I'll assume Sheet1 as the sheet where your database is located.

Define VSize as referring to:

=MATCH(REPT("z",255),Sheet1!$A:$A)-ROW(Sheet1!A$1)+1

Define HSize as referring to:

=COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$D$1,"?*")

Define (or re-define) MyNa as referring to:

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$2,0,0,VSize,HSize)

On the same Data Base, i want a cell to always have the date 1/08/for the current year. Can that be done so i never have to manually update it? and in the cell next to that i want the same but always 1 year in front, I'm doing conditional formatting based on memberships due and having these dates hard coded into a cell will help.

thanks again

Cells will be G1 and H1
