This table will vary in size with the time (adding more dates)
I am trying to create some named range but filtered on the name.
So the named ranges I would like to create are:
NR_MIKE would be a subset of the above table that only contains the rows which name=MIKE and if possible the column headers as well.
NR_BOB... same but name=BOB this time

In other words, NR_MIKE would be like having a table only populated with rows 1,2,6,9,12

Would somebody know how to achieve this?

Thank you.

Hello bixentel and welcome to the board!

How do you intend on using the named range? I would tend to just name the entire table, something like:

=A1:INDEX(D:D,MATCH(9.99E+302,B:B))

And then I'd use that name in my formulas / macros. But it would help to know what you intend on doing with the table.

Hello!
Thank you for your quick answer!

basically the goal is to create charts based on those named ranges.
I would have 1 chart per user, growing with the time.
On each chart there would be the 2 series for values and volume.

Basically, sort of a lookup:
=LOOKUP("BOB",A1:A13,C1:C13)

But which would return a range instead of value, so that I can store it in the named range.

You could try to make a pivot table from the data and then drive your charts from the pivot table.
