Define Label Range

Opens a dialogue box in which you can define a label range.

To access this command...

Choose Sheet - Named Ranges and Expressions - Labels.


Recognising Names as Addressing

The cell contents of a label range can be used like names in formulae - LibreOffice recognises these names in the same manner that it does the predefined names of the weekdays and months. These names are automatically completed when typed into a formula. In addition, the names defined by label ranges will have priority over names defined by automatically generated ranges.

Note Icon

You can set label ranges that contain the same labels on different sheets. LibreOffice first searches the label ranges of the current sheet and, following a failed search, the ranges of other sheets.


Range

Displays the cell reference of each label range. In order to remove a label range from the list box, select it and then click Delete.

Shrink / Maximise

Click the Shrink icon to reduce the dialogue box to the size of the input field. It is then easier to mark the required reference in the sheet. The icons then automatically convert to the Maximise icon. Click it to restore the dialogue box to its original size.

The dialogue box is automatically minimised when you click within a sheet with the mouse. As soon as you release the mouse button, the dialogue box is restored and the reference range defined with the mouse is highlighted in the document by a blue frame.
