definedName (Defined Name)

This element defines the defined names that are defined within this workbook. Defined names are descriptive text that is used to represents a cell, range of cells, formula, or constant value. Use easy-to-understand names, such as Products, to refer to hard to understand ranges, such as Sales!C20:C30.

A defined name in a formula can make it easier to understand the purpose of the formula. [Example: The formula =SUM(FirstQuarterSales) might be easier to identify than =SUM(C20:C30). end example]

Names are available to any sheet. [Example: Ifthe name ProjectedSales refers to the range A20:A30 on the first worksheet in a workbook, you can use the name ProjectedSales on any other sheet in the same workbook to refer to range A20:A30 on the first worksheet. end example]

Names can also be used to represent formulas or values that do not change (constants). [Example: The name SalesTax can be used to represent the sales tax amount (such as 6.2 percent) applied to sales transactions. end example]

You can also link to a defined name in another workbook, or define a name that refers to cells in another workbook. [Example: The formula =SUM(Sales.xls!ProjectedSales) refers to the named range ProjectedSales in the workbook named Sales. end example]

A compliant producer or consumer considers a defined name in the range A1-XFD1048576 to be an error.

All other names outside this range can be defined as names and overrides a cell reference if an ambiguity exists.

[Example: For clarification: LOG10 is always a cell reference, LOG10() is always formula, LOGO1000 can be a defined name that overrides a cell reference. end example]
