How can i add on to that code

e.g. my next named ranges would be "MeritToday" & "Merit Yesterday"

Thanks
Seamus
Option Explicit

Public Sub CompareData()
  'compares Today and Yesterday named ranges
  Dim rngToday As Range
  Dim rngYesterday As Range
  Dim rngTcell As Range
  Dim boolFirstTime As Boolean
  
  Set rngToday = ActiveSheet.Range("Today")
  Set rngYesterday = ActiveSheet.Range("Yesterday")
  
  If (rngToday.Columns.Count = rngYesterday.Columns.Count) _
    And (rngToday.Rows.Count = rngYesterday.Rows.Count) Then
  Else
    MsgBox "Sophis Fiscal are Identical!", vbCritical, "Range size difference"
    Exit Sub
  End If
  
  
  boolFirstTime = True
  For Each rngTcell In rngToday
    If rngTcell.Value <> rngYesterday.Cells(rngTcell.Row - rngToday.Row + 1, rngTcell.Column - rngToday.Column + 1).Value Then
    Else
      If boolFirstTime Then
        boolFirstTime = False   'skip header cell
      Else
        Exit Sub
      End If
    End If
  Next
  MsgBox "Data Identical", vbCritical, "Range Data Identical"
End Sub

Seamus2626,

Try the code below to add the range names. Change the ranges to which each of them refer to suit your requirements.

Patrick
ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="MeritToday", RefersToR1C1:="=Sheet1!R1C1:R10C1"
    Range("B1:B10").Select
    ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="Merit Yesterday", RefersToR1C1:="=Sheet1!R1C2:R10C2"

Hi Patrick, is not possible for me to simply name a range like the above code as opposed to having to reference each area?

Thanks

I don't understand the point you are making. Do please explain. The code  I gave can and will work.
