Hi,

Create a range name "A" for your range A65:A95
Create a range name "B" for your range B65:B95  etc

in cells A2:A32  (as a group), enter this array formula  =indirect(A1)
(while pressing Shift+ Ctrl+Enter)

So now, when you enter "a" in cell A1, this wll populate your cells A2:A32
with values found in cells A65:A95

Cheers!

André
