I have a personal finance sheet that has the pages:
summary   <-- main page
bank
pnc inv
vanguard

I go:
DATA->DEFINE RANGE
to give my cells understandable names.  
 
From the main page (Summary) I have 4 cells:
1) =PncInterestRate
2) =InflationRate
3) =vanguardCurrentValue
4) =BankChecking

All 4 cells are defined as:
1) $'PNC Inv'.$B$6
2) $Summary.$D$2
3) $Vanguard.$B$8
4) $Bank.$B$1

The data from the main page Summary is the only one that doesn't work.  I get:
#REF!
for it.  All the other ones give the appropriate numbers.  Why can't I get data from the summary page ON the summary pae?

Really if #2 is already on the summary page then, you should just have a value of $D$2.  If using that does not work, then please post the Calc sheet minus any confidential information and I can take a look.

Thank you.  I'll try to take any confidential stuff off and repost it.  The reason I deleted my question was  I could't duplicate my problems.  I'll do it today.

I think I found your other question here.  If these are the same, here is what I think is going on.  It looks like you have database ranges and sheet ranges mixed up together.  Notice here in database ranges that you have several ranges (from the menu Data >> Define Range)
Data Ranges
Now if you look at your named ranges, you will see another list:
Selecting Named RangesNotice in this list that some items have the #REF! error:
Your Named RangesThe named ranges are what you want to be set correctly for the way you are using them in formulas.  Update those values here and your sheet will work better.
