Naming cells
One problem with the Go To command is that most people won’t know which
cell contains the data they want to find. For example, if you want to view the
cell that contains the total amount of money you owe for your income taxes,
you probably don’t want to memorize that this cell is G68.
To help you identify certain cells, Excel lets you give them descriptive names.
To name a cell or range of cells, follow these steps:
1. Select the cell or cells that you want to name.
2. Click in the Name box, which appears directly above the A column
heading, as shown in Figure 8-12.
3. Type a descriptive name without any spaces and then press Enter.
