Deleting Names

There may come a time when you want to delete names you previously defined and used in Excel. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Choose Name from the Insert menu, and then Define from the resulting submenu. Excel displays the Define Name dialog box. (See Figure 1.) (It sounds strange to choose Define when you want to delete something, but that is the way Excel is designed.)
  2. Figure 1. The Define Name dialog box.

  3. In the list of available names, select the one you want to delete.
  4. Click on the Delete button. The name is removed from the list.
  5. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for other names you want to delete
  6. Click on OK to close the Define Name dialog box.
