Using Named Formulas Across Workbooks in Excel

Named formulas are a great way to make your formulas more readable and easier to understand. They also make it easier to use the same formula across multiple workbooks. In this article, we'll show you how to use named formulas across workbooks in Excel.

To start, open the workbook that contains the named formula that you want to use in another workbook. Then, open the other workbook where you want to use the named formula. On the Formulas tab, in the Defined Names group, click Use in Formula.

In the Paste Name dialog box, select the named range or defined name that you want to use, and then click OK.

Now, the named formula will be available in the other workbook. You can use it just like any other formula.

If you want to edit the named formula, simply go back to the original workbook and make your changes. The changes will automatically be reflected in the other workbook.

That's all there is to using named formulas across workbooks in Excel!
