If have a named range and want to loop thru a specific column of the named range is this possible.  Note my defuned name range spans from A1:C300.  I want to loop thru Column A and if it matches then take a value found in the same row from column B.  Am I just better off not trying to leverage off my Defined Name and instead set the range (Col A) from within the code ?

Dim MyRng as Range

For each MyRng in Range("Produce")
  If "Orange" = MyRng THEN
     msgBox = MyRng.Offset(0,1)
else
 end if

If Produce is your named range you can loop through column A like this.
For each MyRng in Range("Produce").Columns(1).Cells
    If MyRng.Value = "Orange" THEN
        MsgBox MyRng.Offset(0,1)
   End If
Next MyRng
