Hi
I have a small marco in Excell (triggered by a button) which i want to "reset" then values of a number of "named" cells in excel (from the same workbook)

The name of the range for example is called "Status" so i wanto to set the value of that cell to "Compete" for example.

I thought this would be straight forward but having trouble...any advce/thoughts?

Sheets("sheet name").range("Status").value = "Compete"

Open in new window

or:
[Status].Value = "Compete"

Open in new window

for example.

NFP as Rory already answered the question.  But there are many ways to do it, I've found this link especially helpful when working with ranges:
