Hi, Is it possible to rename the active sheet shapes with cell values, there will only ever be 15 shapes in column C and 15 cell values to use as a name in Column B

cells B2,13,24,35,46,57,68,79,90,101,112,123,134,145,156 - Each cell has a different name and will always be a number.

Both Column B and C have merged cells with 7 cells used to merge with in each group of cells
example:
B2-B8 (B2 contains the name) and C2-C8 will have a shape in that area.
B13-B19 (B13 contains the name) and C13-C19 will have a shape in that area.
B24-B30 (B24 contains the name) and C24-C30 will have a shape in that area.
So Rename C2-C8 Shape with B2, Rename C13-C19 Shape with B13 and Rename C24-C30 with B24

Hope this makes sense, Can someone help with this please in that area. e.g. cell 13-19, 24-30

Perhaps this:-
Code:
[COLOR="Navy"]Sub[/COLOR] MG18Feb39
[COLOR="Navy"]Dim[/COLOR] Sh [COLOR="Navy"]As[/COLOR] Shape
[COLOR="Navy"]For[/COLOR] [COLOR="Navy"]Each[/COLOR] Sh [COLOR="Navy"]In[/COLOR] ActiveSheet.Shapes
 [COLOR="Navy"]If[/COLOR] Sh.TopLeftCell.Column = 3 [COLOR="Navy"]Then[/COLOR]
    Sh.Name = Sh.TopLeftCell.Offset(, -1).MergeArea(1).Value
  [COLOR="Navy"]End[/COLOR] If
[COLOR="Navy"]Next[/COLOR] Sh
[COLOR="Navy"]End[/COLOR] [COLOR="Navy"]Sub[/COLOR]
[COLOR="Navy"]End[/COLOR] [COLOR="Navy"]Sub[/COLOR]
