look at Named Constants. These are simply values that are given a meaningful name. For example, let's say you have a Workbook that has
many formulas using the percentage of 20% and this represents some
sort of 'special tax'. You can replace all those occurrences of 20%
with a Named Constant like "SpecialTax". Here is how you do this.
1) Go to Insert>Name>Define and in the "Names in workbook" box type: SpecialTax
2) Now click in the "Refers to" box and type: =0.2 then click Add.
Now you can replace formulas
like: =SUM(Yr2005Figures)*20% with: =SUM(Yr2005Figures)*SpecialTax
If you already have many Excel formulas using the 20% in their calculations, you can either use Edit>Replace or Insert>Name>Apply to replace them with ease.
The best thing about Named Constants is that any constant can be changed to another value globally via Insert>Name>Define.
