Reuse a deleted table name

New Contributor

I want to rename a table with a table name that I have deleted.  When I try to do this, I get an error message saying that the (deleted) name still exists.  What to do?

If you've verified the name isn't in use in the name manager, try closing/re-opening Excel.

Yes, I have closed & reopened Excel.  I also waited about 10 minutes before re-opening.
