    How do you name a range of worksheets? Example Sheets 1,2, and 3 would be called "TheSheets"

    It appears that a Defined Name can only span multiple worksheets and still be useful if the sizes are all the same - at least in 2007, which is all I have access to at the moment. But why would you want to have a name span more than one worksheet?

    Update:
    I was able to define a name as:
    TestName=Sheet1!$A$1:$B$10+Sheet2!$A$1:$B$10+Sheet 3!$A$1:$B$10
    and then do a sum on the name in another cell. I suppose that is useful.
