Hi All, I have a very large spreadsheet created in Excel 2003 (it has 20000 range names) that work very well. I recently upgraded to excel 2103 and opened the file in 2013 and saved it as a macro enabled 2013 file.

I closed it and reopened the new file in 2013 and I am tod there is an error and the file needs to be repaired to be opened. I click OK and the file opens and I am told that an object error was found and deleted on a sheet. I re saved the file, closed it and I get the same message each time I open the file.

I tried deleting the sheet that was described with the error message and no change in the result.

I printed a list of all range names (using the ASAP addin) and found three range names that I have not seen before but they refer to the sheet described as having an object error (see above).

I want to delete these range names to see if it fixes the problem but the names do not appear on the list shown in the excel 2013 Name Manager so I can't find them to delete them.

Any suggestions on this problem please
