Default #VALUE! result when using defined name in formula

I am learning how to name cells and use these names.

I tried to name a cell in my Summary sheet using the sum of cells in my
Detail sheet. When I press enter, the cell returns a #VALUE! What am i
doing wrong?

That means there's a #VALUE! error in your sum range. Go check & clean it up,
the sum should work fine
