I want to create a named range by selecting only the cells in a column that contain data,
Data in the column can easily be sorted to move all the cells with  data to the top before defining the name .

(re)Sorting the data will wreck the range name, it will keep pointing to the same cells. The syntax for defining the name is:

intersect(activesheet.usedrange,Range("A:A")).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Name = "TheName"
