For a Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick event I want to find out if the Target is a Named Range "ClickCell". I tried the Name property which gives Sheet1!$D$4. I want it to return "ClickCell".
Thanks.

Is this what you want?

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim nm As Name
    
    For Each nm In ActiveWorkbook.Names
        If CheckRange(Target, Range(nm)) Then MsgBox nm.Name
    Next
End Sub

Function CheckRange(TargetToCheck As Range, NMToCheck As Range) As Boolean
    On Error Resume Next
    CheckRange = Not Application.Intersect(TargetToCheck, NMToCheck) Is Nothing
    Err.Clear: On Error GoTo -1: On Error GoTo 0
End Function

You can of course do it as a one liner using:


intersect(range("ClickCell"), target) is nothing

Chris
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
    
    If Intersect(Range("ClickCell"), Target) Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox "Not in range"
    Else
        MsgBox "Is in range"
    End If

End Sub
