I'm trying to add a dynamic range to an Excel workbook. If I use the GUI it works fine, but when I try it programmatically it fails with runtime error 1004.

Name is: Test
Refers to is: =Master!$C$7:INDEX(Master!$C:$C,SUMPRODUCT(--(Master!$C:$C<>""))+5)

Here is the code:
ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="Test", RefersTo:="=Master!$C$7:INDEX(Master!$C:$C,SUMPRODUCT(--(Master!$C:$C<>""))+5)"
