Range address

I have a named range.  When I assign it to a formula, the address is displayed in the formula, not the range name.  Is there a way to correct this so that the descriptive range name appears in the formula.  See vlookujp formulae in attached workbook.  In the name manager, the cells have the proper notation.

Instead of selecting the range, just type the name of the range.  This should work.


This is how its coming for me.

The problem is you defined your named range incorrectly. Don't enclose the range reference in quotes.
