The cell values, then, are QC readings for each variable for each yyyy-mm. I use the variable names as Range Names. Each Variable Named Range us a row in the PT (which includes the values for all the yyyy-mm returned by the query for that variable. Initially, I used the INSERT, NAME, CREATE command to create the ranges. The ranges are also used in a pick list that allows the user to select the variable for which he/she wants to see the trend of QC readings over the months for which we have readings.
