I am putting together several single sheets into one work book.

Each sheet is a small financial calculator.

Several of the sheets use the name "inflation" e.g. in one sheet called "gearing", another sheet called " level of cover".

How can I have different definitions for "inflation", so that, for instance i have, say, "inflation = gearing $b$15 for the gearing work sheet, and, say,
"inflation = level of cover$c12$ for the level of cover work sheet, and so on.

Currently when I change the formula to define "inflation" in one sheet, it changes on the other sheets.

Thanks.

Define the names as local to the worksheet rather than at workbook level, ie use Sheetname!Name rather than just Name.
