    The Name box displays the active cell, but the formula bar displays the content of the cell. I think the correct answer should be Formula Bar.

  • In Microsoft Excel, the Name Box is the box to the left of the formula bar that displays the cell that is currently selected or active in the spreadsheet. If a name is defined for a cell that is selected, the Name Box displays the name of the cell. You can use the Name Box to define a name for a selected cell as well.

    Note that an active cell, alternatively referred to as a cell pointer, current cell, or selected cell, is a rectangular box, highlighting the cell in a spreadsheet.
