We all have been there. You started to build a simple workbook to keep track of an ongoing project or dashboard or something equally complicated. Even before you realize the workbook has 23 sheets and 41 named ranges all going from one place to another, like flying spaghetti monster, only less awesome.
Now, how do you keep track of all these names?
Thankfully, there is just the feature for this, called as “paste names“.
This is how it works.
To paste all the names and their corresponding references, just press F3 anywhere in a workbook and click the button that says “paste names”. Bingo, you have a list of names and their references. Now, you can audit a spreadsheet or maintain it with ease.
That is all. Go back to eating spaghetti, now.
