# Column() - Give Letter Instead Of Number?

Nov 27, 2007
When using the formula '=COLUMN()' in cell A1, it returns the number of the column - in this case, '1' (for column A). Is it possible to affect this formula so that it returns the column letter (in this case, 'A')?

I am a teacher and I want a column to turn a particular colour if a pupil has met their target grade and another if they have not. Our grades work as letters A* being the best then descending as follows A, B, C, D, E, F, G, U.

I have a column with the pupil's target grade (one of the above letters) and another column with their current grade. How do I get excel to understand the ranking of the letters and format the current grade column according to whether they have met their target or not?

I'm trying to find the largest number in a row and then have the column heading (text) as the result. I can find the largest number by using =max(numb1, numb2 ....) but then how do I get the heading of the column as the result. An example of what I want to happen is below

Red

Green

Blue

Orange

Yellow

Result

2

4

3

6

1

[code]...

I anticipate an issue where 2 columns have the same largest number and not sure how to over come this either with multiple answers

I need to convert a column letter to a column number for the following line of code in my VBA application:

VB:

strAverageBaseFormula = "=AVERAGE(D" & Trim(Str(lngFirstRowOfIncrement + 1)) & ":K" & Trim(Str(lngFirstRowOfIncrement + 1)) & ")"

I am inserting a formula into a cell using VBA, but the problem is that I don't know the letter value of column "K" (used in the middle of the line); instead, I know it as column number 11. Is there a simple way to convert the column number 11 to the column letter "K"?

Can column() return a letter instead of a number? I am planning to use it with INDIRECT? Is that possible?

=INDIRECT(row() & column())?

Some bits of code I have learned use column numbers and some bits use column letters.

Can someone share a line or two that I could add to my macro that will convert the F representing column F into a 6, and vice versa, so that I can continue using my pre-existing bits?

ce.Offset(, 4) = "=" & ce.Offset(, -1).Address & "*" & ce.Offset(, 4).Column & "25"

If X29 were equal to ce.Offset(,4) then the value in that cell should be set to

"=S29*X25"

Currenctly it is returning "=S29*2425"

(FYI - ce is just a variable to capture a particular range/cell that is dynamic and used within a For Next Loop)

I wanted to know if there was a way to either make a variable hold a column letter or else automatically convert a column number to a letter. This would be for use in the Range property.

All I could find is some complicated technique requiring division by 26 that I will never remember let alone code quickly.

Or if you have a variable holding a column number, is the only way to use it with Cells?

Is there a function that will output the column letter? For example there's one I know of: =COLUMN(), which outputs column number, but not the letter. And if not, can a formula be written to output it without converting the spreadsheet to R1C1 style or using the lookup function that refers to a separate table within the spreadsheet?

In my spreadsheet the formula

gives 8 which is correct.

But I know ONLY that the column is 11 (that is 11 th column). Then how do I write the above count formula wilthout using column letter k.

I have a variable, ColumnX. I want to use VBA to generate some formula referencing ColumnX. For example: I want to sum the values in A1 to A10. ColumnX has been set to "1" which is the number of column A.

Range("A11")= "=sum("A1:" & ColumnX & "10)"

Obviously the above code doesn't work because I'm putting a number where VBA expects a letter. How can I rewrite my code so that A11 will entered with formula that sums A1 to A10?

I need code to change a letter such as A into a column number i.e 1. Everything i can find is to do with changing column numbers into letters, surely you can do it the other weay round aswell? So when the macro is given the letter AA it returns the column number as 27 etc, but i need it as a defined variable such as "i = column number" so i can use this information further on in my code.

I am having troubles finding a row number, using it to specify a range and then counting the cells containg values in that range.

This is what I have

Code:

Private Sub TextBox1_Change()

Dim test1 As String

Dim FoundRom As Range

Dim i as String

Dim abc1 As Range

Dim Core1 As String

test1 = TextBox1.Value

[Code] ........

I am thinking that I have my "Dim"'s wrong or something but I cant figure out how to define the range including the found row number and then count the number of cells containing data within that range...

For the below formula is it possible to replace the B's (column location) with a cell Say Z146 which contains the letter B (or a number if thats easier and someone can tell me the numbers for each column).

When the formula is dragged into the next cell (down) it takes its column reference from Z147 and then my life becomes so much easier.

=IF(INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH($C145,'Overs-Unders'!$A:$A,0))"",INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH($C145,'Overs-Unders'!$A:$A,0)),"")

Looking for a way to search an active cell (that has been found using macro) for numerical data and if there is some present paste this in a different location

If there is no numerical data in this this cell then paste a 0 in a different location

An example of the string contained in the cell

Product 7.5% wheat <- i would want 7.5 (or 7.5%) copied to a different cell

or

Product X <- i would want a 0 copied to the cell the 7.5 would be in from the above

I can find the cell to search in, i just do not know the correct way to extract the information I need.

I have letter and number combination code in two collumns and they differ for 10.000 numbers:

BAM98314

BAM88314

BAM90000

BAM80000

As you can see the left code is for 10000 numbers higher. the letters are allways the same. In the event that this isn't so, if difference between codes in same row is more or less than 10000 numbers. I was thinking on making conditional formating so the cells with wrong difference would be marked red, but I do not know how to make formula for this difference.

How to translate a specific number into a specific letter related to the number itself.

I have lots of different numbers for example all going down a specific cell (These numbers I want to separate into 3 different catagories. The positive numbers I want to be calculated as the same Letter that is next to that row directly over to the left of that cell.

So if the letter

B / cell / cell / +9 / Then I want if its a positive number like +9 to answer in the formula with the same letter (B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

B / cell / cell / -6 / Then I want if its any negative number like -6 to answer in the formula as the opposite Letter of (P) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

P / cell / cell / +17 / Then I want if its a positive number like +17 to answer in the formula as the same letter (P) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

P / cell / cell / -3 / Then I want if its a negative number like -3 to answer in the formula as the opposite Letter of (B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

and thirdly if its a (0) zero and only (zero's) Then I want the answer to stay (0) zero.

The number can be any numbers it doesn't matter. Only distinction is that positive number of +1 and up repeat and stay the same letter that the cell on the far left is already stated.

and all the negative number of -1 amd below all reverse the letter to the opposite letter of (B to a P) or (P to a B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

and of course (0) zero would be listed as a positive number and only return a (0) zero as the result of the formula.

I have a table with 5 columns and approx. 85-90 rows.

Column A has the Branch name in it e.g. Beavers or Bedfont (11 Branches in total)

Column B has User Type - Adult, Child, Guest (Adult), Guest (Child), Catalogue

Column C has Session Type - Booking, Drop-In

Column D has Total Session Time (mins) - which gives a number in minutes of the total session time used

Column E is not needed

I currently get a calculator and add up e.g all of the adult Bookings for Beavers and enter them onto a Report Sheet, then all of the Adult Drop-Ins for Beavers etc. I want an Excel Spreadsheet that will give me a total number for each so I can do away with the calculator.

I am thinking of creating a new sheet with a number of cells that have a formula similar to this

=IF(AND(A2="Beavers",B2="Adult",C2="Booking"),E2,0)

But I want it to see Adult, Guest (Adult) and Catalogue as the same thing / and I want it to pick up Child and Guest (Child) as the same thing.

I am trying to do something for a baseball game I am creating. What I am looking for is a formula for one cell that will basically give me a whole number when a certain criteria is met. I am also looking for this cell's formula to get part of it's formula from another cell in the document. So let's use cell A1 has 1.50 in it.

I want this other cells formula to be able to give me a 9 if A1 is 0.00-1.50, a 8 if A1 is 1.51-2.79, 7 if A1 is 2.80-4.30, a 6 if A1 is 4.31-5.49 and 5 if A1 is 5.50-500.00.
