If cell A1 is named 'dog' and cell A2 is named 'cat' and I have a formula in cell A3 that is '=dog+cat', does anyone know a quick way to get the formula to turn back to '=A1+A2'?

Thanks for the help...

Hi, welcome to the board!

How about Find and Replace?

Good idea, but I am hoping for something quicker. I have a lot of formulas with a lot of different names.
