vba to clear out stuff in Name Manager Cont

I am using the below code to clear from Name manager. Seemed to work fine last week now I am getting Run Time Error

Sub test()
    Dim n As Name
    For Each n In Names
        n.Delete
    Next
End Sub

Run time error 1004

The name that you entered is not valid.
 Reasons for this can include:
 -The name does not begin with a letter or an underscore
 -The name contains a space or other invalid characters
 -The name conflicts with an Excel built-in name or the name of another object in the workbook.

Please assist to resolve

The code seems to be okay and not supposed to produce an error.

Try adding a line On Error Resume Next and see what happens...

Sub test()
    On Error Resume Next
    Dim n As Name
    For Each n In Names
        n.Delete
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window


Also is it complete code or part of another code? And have you tried to debug the code while an error is produced? Which line of code is highlighted then?
