Range Names In Excel

Special Names

Excel also uses defined names for built-in functions. The table below lists a few:

Used option


Print area


Print Titles


Advanced Filter Criteria


It is not wise to remove or change this kind of names using the Define Name dialog (or by other means), unless you know exactly what you are doing. It is better to let Excel handle those names.
