Excel VBA - Code for getting the name of a cell?

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I'm trying to write code that will return the user names that have been given to cells.

What I tried below gives cell names like 'Sheet1'!$B$10
I actually need the name that has been given to that cell, which in this case happens to be "db1_Rd_PPRnum" (that is, the Name Manager name, not the cell reference)

Sub M_CellNames_Td_db1_CommonInfo()
    Dim rCell As Range
    Dim rRangeWithNamedCells As Range
    Set rRangeWithNamedCells = [Td_db1_CommonInfo]
    For Each rCell In rRangeWithNamedCells
        Cells([c_db1_CommonInfo_CellNames_Cell1].Row, rCell.Column).Value = rCell.Name
        Next rCell
End Sub
