Dynamic Named Ranges

Query Template

Stack Template

Dynamic Named Ranges are designed to stretch and contract to perfectly fit the data.  The Development Template automates this to eliminate the need to define multiple names and formulas. The Query Template brings in data from other sources and performs calculations.  It creates names and updates the sheet at the click of a button.  This is the interface to the host ERP/MRP system. The Stack Template takes multiple tables with comparable field and appends them together.  It can automatically append tables with ten thousands of rows and calculate in seconds.

Explode Template

Pivot Template


The Explode Template takes a table with parent items and explodes it down to the child.  Very common with bills of material and routing to calculate material and process requirements. The Pivot Table Template extends native Excel pivot tables to automatic Named Ranges. It can leverage the blazing speed of pivot calculations, perform more and then present the results as a named table. The Development Template has several useful utilities that automate repetitive processes in managing names, sheets, ranges and workbooks.  The macros are reusable and can be applied elsewhere.
