VBA modification help needed from earlier solution by Rgonzo1971

I had this question after viewing VBA modification help needed to revise the formula.

Rgonzo1971 was so kind to help me with this code that generates dynamic range.

Sub Create_RangeNames1()
     'Creates dynamic named ranges based on header row information only Selection
    Dim wbk As Workbook
    Dim sht As Worksheet
    Dim rng, rng2 As Range
    Dim cl As Range 'Object
    Dim c As Long
    Dim strAddr As Variant
    Dim strShName, strHdrName, strCol As String
    
    Set wbk = ActiveWorkbook
    Set sht = ActiveSheet
    Set rng = Selection
    For c = 1 To rng.Columns.Count
        If Cells(1, c).Value <> "" Then
            strShName = Replace(sht.Name, " ", "_", 1)
            strHdrName = Replace(Cells(1, c).Value, " ", "_", 1)
            strCol = Cells(2, c).EntireColumn.Address
            Set rng2 = sht.Range(Cells(, c), Cells(1, c).End(xlDown))
             wbk.Names.Add Name:=strShName & strHdrName, _
                RefersTo:="=OFFSET('" & sht.Name & "'!" & Cells(2, c).Address & ",0,0,SUMPRODUCT(MAX(('" & sht.Name & "'!" & strCol & "<>"""")*ROW('" & sht.Name & "'!" & strCol & ")))-1,1)"
       End If
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window


this generates the  only for column A  . =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$2,0,0,SUMPRODUCT(MAX((Sheet1!$A:$A<>"")*ROW(Sheet1!$A:$A)))-1,1)

which it should create name range only for columns that i select . meaning should run on "Selection of columns"

but this has problem. it only creates column A regardless even if i select column C. the named range is always column A.

Hi,
pls try
Sub Create_RangeNames1()
     'Creates dynamic named ranges based on header row information only Selection
    Dim wbk As Workbook

    Dim rng, rng2 As Range
    Dim cl As Range 'Object
    Dim c As Long
    Dim strAddr As Variant
    Dim strShName, strHdrName, strCol As String
    
    Set wbk = ActiveWorkbook
    Set sht = ActiveSheet
    Set rng = Selection
    For c = rng.Column To rng.Column + rng.Columns.Count - 1
        If Cells(1, c).Value <> "" Then
            strShName = Replace(sht.Name, " ", "_", 1)
            strHdrName = Replace(Cells(1, c).Value, " ", "_", 1)
            strCol = Cells(2, c).EntireColumn.Address
            Set rng2 = sht.Range(Cells(, c), Cells(1, c).End(xlDown))
             wbk.Names.Add Name:=strShName & strHdrName, _
                RefersTo:="=OFFSET('" & sht.Name & "'!" & Cells(2, c).Address & ",0,0,SUMPRODUCT(MAX(('" & sht.Name & "'!" & strCol & "<>"""")*ROW('" & sht.Name & "'!" & strCol & ")))-1,1)"
       End If
    Next
