The following code example sets the range of cells from B1 through D10 to random numbers and then uses the Consolidate method to consolidate this range into a NamedRange control.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void SetConsolidation()
{
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange namedRange1 =
        this.Controls.AddNamedRange(this.Range["A1"],
        "namedRange1");

    Excel.Range Range1 = this.Range["B1", "D10"];
    Range1.Formula = "=rand()";

    string[] source = new string[] { "Sheet1!R1C2:R10C4" };
    namedRange1.Consolidate(source, Excel.XlConsolidationFunction.xlSum,
        false, false, false);
}
