## Convert Column Letter To Number

Nov 22, 2005

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"?

## Using .Column After An .Offset - Need The Letter But Get A Number

Sep 22, 2009

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)

## Method To Convert Column Number To Letter

Sep 15, 2014

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?

## Converting A Column Number Into A Column Letter

Mar 9, 2007

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

## Return Column Letter Based On The Letter In A Cell.

Dec 31, 2009

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)),"")

## Decrease Letter And Number Combination Code By Number

Dec 21, 2012

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 Number Into Specific Letter Related To Number

Feb 3, 2014

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.
