Changing Text in a Range Named and Macro Assigned "Box"

EE Pros,

I have a graphic where I'm trying to change the text in the textbox in cell (B2) from "Select an Outcome" to "Select an Area of Optimization".  The problem I have run across is that the text is used in a macro and is also a range name and I cannot figure out how to change the text (I've tried to change the range name and tried to change the text in the Macro).

I'm looking for "how" to do this so I can learn.

Thank you in advance.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
   Dim cel                    As Range
   Dim rInitSel               As Range
   Dim rSelections            As Range
   Dim lFreeCells             As Long

   ' input cell to monitor
   Set rInitSel = Range(mc_sINPUT_CELL)

   If Not Intersect(Target, rInitSel) Is Nothing Then

      ' don't act when no valid selection
      If rInitSel.Value = "Select an Outcome" Then Exit Sub

      ' this is the shaded range for the selected outcomes
      Set rSelections = Range(mc_sSELECTED_OUTCOMES)

      On Error Resume Next
      Application.EnableEvents = False

      ' check how many selected outcome cells are empty
      lFreeCells = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountBlank(rSelections)
      If lFreeCells = 0 Then
         ' no cells available - offer to clear
         If MsgBox(prompt:="All available outcome cells are full. Do you wish to clear and start again?", Buttons:=vbYesNo) = vbNo Then
            ' do nothing
         Else
            ' clear the current selections
            ResetPrioritiesAll
            lFreeCells = rSelections.Count
         End If
      End If

      If lFreeCells > 0 Then
         ' get first available output cell
         With rSelections
            Set cel = .Cells(.Count - lFreeCells + 1)
         End With
         cel.Value = rInitSel.Value
      End If
      ' reset B2 to standard text
      rInitSel.Value = "Select an Outcome"
      Application.EnableEvents = True
   End If


End Sub

Open in new window


Replace
      rInitSel.Value = "Select an outcome"

 with

  rInitSel.Value = "Select an Area of Optimization"

and replace

      If rInitSel.Value = "Select an Outcome" Then Exit Sub

with

      If rInitSel.Value = "Select an Area of Optimization" Then Exit Sub

Raganzo,

Thank you!  Works now.  Appreciate you letting me know exactly what you did.  I had tried that earlier but had missed the second reference point.

I have another question outstanding; if you get a chance, take a look.

Thanks again,

B.
