Example: This is very easy ... if I explain it correctly!

I have a value "J" stored in cell A1. (This value will change!)
I then define a NAME so that cell A1 is named "Initial"

In VBA code I want to set strInitial =   the value in name "Initial"
See below.  

dim strInitial as string
    strInitial = ?????

What is the correct syntax so that strInitial will hold the value of "Initial"

This is much simpler and will also work:

dim strInitial as string
strInitial = [Initial]

The [] square brackets just mean evaluate.
