I'm trying to create Named Ranges from code but I'm unable to create them, basically I need to assign a name to a particular cell in order to reference it from other sheets.

Thanks in advance.

Carlos Diaz.

Hi Carlos,


Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.


You can define the named ranges in the Spreadsheet by using the following code snippet.


Code Snippet[C#]:

this.spreadSheetControl.WorkBookLoaded += spreadSheetControl_WorkBookLoaded;
void spreadSheetControl_WorkBookLoaded(object sender, WorkbookLoadedEventArgs args)
    IWorkbook workbook = this.spreadSheetControl.ExcelProperties.WorkBook;
    GridControl grid = this.spreadSheetControl.GridProperties.ActiveSpreadsheetGrid;
    IName name1 = workbook.Names.Add("FIRSTCELL");
    name1.RefersToRange = workbook.ActiveSheet.Range["A1"];
    grid.Model.FormulaEngine.AddNamedRange(name1.Name, name1.Value);



We have prepared a sample based on this and you can find the sample from the below location.


Please let us know if you have any other queries.
