Hi,

I have a requirement in my formula that certain strings gets repeated. I want to put that string as a defined name. Here is an example of such string:

Code:
" One"," Two"," Three"," Four"," Five"," Six"," Seven"," Eight"," Nine"," Ten"," Eleven"," Twelve"," Thirteen"," Fourteen"," Fifteen"," Sixteen"," Seventeen"," Eighteen"," Nineteen"," Twenty"
I want to define a name to represent above string.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Thank you.

You need to double up the quote marks and then surround the entire text in quote marks. Use this for your "Refers To" when setting up the Defined Name...
Code:
=""" One"","" Two"","" Three"","" Four"","" Five"","" Six"","" Seven"","" Eight"","" Nine"","" Ten"","" Eleven"","" Twelve"","" Thirteen"","" Fourteen"","" Fifteen"","" Sixteen"","" Seventeen"","" Eighteen"","" Nineteen"","" Twenty"""
