Define and Use Names in Formulas In Excel
In Excel, you can use names to refer to cells, ranges, or formulas. This can make your formulas easier to read and understand, as well as make them easier to work with.

To define a name in Excel, follow these steps:

Select the cells or range that you want to name.
Click the "Formulas" tab in the ribbon.
Click the "Define Name" button in the "Defined Names" group.
In the "New Name" dialog box, enter a name in the "Name" field.
Click "OK" to close the dialog box.
To use a name in a formula, simply type the name in the formula, as you would a cell reference. For example, if you have defined a name "SalesData" for the range A1:C10, you can use the following formula to sum the values in the range:

=SUM(SalesData)

You can also use named ranges in formulas by enclosing the name in square brackets, like this:

=SUM([SalesData])

You can also use the "Insert Function" dialog box to insert named ranges into formulas. Simply select the name from the list of defined names and click "OK" to insert it into the formula.
