Defining names for ranges, constant values, and formulas helps make your spreadsheets clear, eliminates manual errors, and makes short work of quick calculations. It also saves you time by preventing you from having to hunt for values and references.
For spreadsheets with numerous sheets of data, defined names make it much easier to navigate across them. Instead of spending your time scrolling through rows and rows of data, you can create a defined name for the cell range and get to it instantly by just typing the name in the cell reference tab.
Defined names are incredibly flexible. You can edit or delete defined names at anytime, and any edit made to an already existing name will alter it in all the formulas and cells used.
You can find the option to define names under the Insert menu. Give defined names a try and let us know how useful they were to you.
