Excel VBA -Create Named Range problem

I'm trying to write a tool to create Named Ranges in the cell on the right of a vertical list of Field Names.
Sub CreateNamedRanges()

    Dim wksThis As Worksheet
    
    Set wksThis = ActiveSheet

    iRow = ActiveCell.Row
    iCol = ActiveCell.Column

    Do Until Cells(iRow, iCol).Value = ""
    
        strName = "TRAC_" + Cells(iRow, iCol).Value
        
        ActiveWorkbook.wksThis.Names.Add Name:=strName, _
            RefersToR1C1:=wksThis.Cells(iRow, iCol + 1)       '<<<<<<<<<<< NOT RIGHT!
    
        iRow = iRow + 1
    Loop

End Sub

Open in new window


My RefersTo argument is clearly not right. How should I code it please?
Thanks

Try this...
wksThis.Names.Add Name:=strName, _
    RefersToR1C1:=wksThis.Cells(iRow, iCol + 1)

Open in new window

Or just this...
strName = "TRAC_" + Cells(iRow, iCol).Value
wksThis.Cells(iRow, iCol + 1).Name = strName

Open in new window
