Excel Facts

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.

It would help if you showed us what the three example names should look like after JACK is replaced.

How I understand you need this:

Code:
Sub Macro_Replace()
    Range("A1:A50").Replace What:="*JACK*", Replacement:="JACK"
End Sub
