This example is for a document-level customization.

Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange refersToR1C1Range;
private void DisplayFormulaR1C1()
{
    refersToR1C1Range = this.Controls.AddNamedRange(
        this.Range["C1", "D2"], "refersToR1C1Range");
    MessageBox.Show(refersToR1C1Range.RefersTo);
    refersToR1C1Range.RefersTo = "=Sheet1!$C$3";
    refersToR1C1Range.Select();
    MessageBox.Show(refersToR1C1Range.RefersTo);
}
