Naming Cells

Allowed names

Names in Calc can contain letters, numeric characters, and some special characters. Names must start with a letter or an underline character.

Allowed special characters:

பெயர்கள் கல மேற்கோள்களைப் போலவே இருக்கக் கூடாது. எடுத்துக்காட்டு, A1 என்பது மேல் இடது கலத்தின் மேற்கோள் என்பதால் A1 எனும் பெயர் செல்லாதது.

Names must not start with the letters C or R followed by a number; also single characters C and R are not allowed as names. See the ADDRESS function for more information.

Names for cell ranges must not include blanks. Blanks are allowed within names for single cells, sheets and documents.

கலங்களையும் சூத்திரங்களையும் பெயரிடல்

A good way of making the references to cells and cell ranges in formulas legible is to give the ranges names. For example, you can name the range A1:B2 Start. You can then write a formula such as "=SUM(Start)". Even after you insert or delete rows or columns, LibreOffice still correctly assigns the ranges identified by name. Range names must not contain any spaces.

For example, it is much easier to read a formula for sales tax if you can write "= Amount * Tax_rate" instead of "= A5 * B12". In this case, you would name cell A5 "Amount" and cell B12 "Tax_rate."

Use the Define Names dialog to define names for formulas or parts of formulas you need more often. In order to specify range names,

  1. Select a cell or range of cells, then choose Sheet - Named Ranges and Expressions - Define. The Define Names dialog appears.

  2. Type the name of the selected area in the Name field. Click Add. The newly defined name appears in the list below. Click OK to close the dialog.

புலத்தில் பெயரை உள்ளிடுதலாலும் பிறகு அந்தந்த கலங்களைத் தேர்ந்தெடுப்பதாலும் நீங்கள் இந்த உரையாலில் மற்ற கல வீச்சுகளைப் பெயரிட முடியும்.

If you type the name in a formula, after the first few characters entered you will see the entire name as a tip.
