Often, if you record a macro doing what you're trying to do, you will get most of the elements for the answer.

The following code will add a workbook-level name called ProjectName" & SBINumberTextBox.Text, referring to A3 of sheet 1.

ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:= "ProjectName" & SBINumberTextBox.Text, RefersToR1C1:="=Sheet1!R3C1"
