Excel friends,

I inherited a workbook that when I run this VBA code Thisworkbook.names("fileversion") I get "Version 3". Now, I am supposed to change it to "Version 4". Where in the menu or what VBA code do I use to change it? I am using Excel 2013.

Thanks for your help!

Hi actjfc,

Seems like it may be a named range. Click the Name Manager option in the Defined Names tab of the FORMULAS ribbon and see if it's there (and modify it if it is).

one word of caution, make changes on a copy. I've done versioning in the past to stop people renaming files, so they only could use original versions

Thank you so much! Yes, it was a constant name range. I found it!. mole999, yes I am working on something related to "tracking" versions. However, maybe it needs a new post to get some ideas.
