I can create it by pressing Ctrl + F3 in the named range manger. But I actually want to do it in VBA code as this should be dynamic...

Could it be that you have not used R1C1 references...
Have added a delete too, but not nescessary

'ActiveWorkbook.Names("MyDynamicRange").Delete
ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="MyDynamicRange", RefersToR1C1:= _
"=Extract201!R1C1:INDEX(Extract201!C15,MATCH(REPT(""z"",20),Extract201!C1))"
