Thanks for your response, Brian, Michael and Pedro.

It seems like I misunderstood what was really happening, and I'm still not
I opened the Manage names dialogue and the fps name referred to sheet name
and cell, so it should just work. I deleted the name and added it again,
and did a simple test with just =fps on the other sheet and it worked. I'm
not sure why it didn't work before. I probably did something that I wasn't
aware about…

Anyway, your responses inspired me to make it work, I think, thanks again.
Problem solved!

Kind regards

An example: Let's say I have two sheets: XSheet and YSheet. On XSheet I
named cell AA1 "fps". In cell XSheet.Z2 I have the following:
This works fine.

However, the same thing doesn't work on YSheet. The result is #VALUE!
I've also tried things like =XSheet.fps*(V2-W2*3600-X2*60-Y2), but with
no success. Also, I can't name a cell "fps" on YSheet, since the name is
already taken.

Is the named rage "fps" defined as "$AA$1"? I think that may be your
problem. What happens if you change the definition explicitly to
"$XSheet.$AA$1" - in other words, to put its allegiance to XSheet in the
definition of the named range instead of trying to put it in the reference?

If you select the required range first and then use Insert | Names > |
Define... to create the name, does the range offered not already include
the sheet name?

I trust this helps.
