The standard Excel “Column” Function returns the number rather than the letter of the column e.g:
Column(E4) – returns the number 5 rather than the letter E
Column(AD12) returns the number 30 rather than AD.
The following function returns the letter rather than the number of the column. So in the above two examples we have the letters E and AD respectively . The routine will return blank if more than a single cell is referenced:
Function Alpha_Column(Cell_Add As Range) As String
Dim No_of_Rows As Integer
Dim No_of_Cols As Integer
Dim Num_Column As Integer
No_of_Rows = Cell_Add.Rows.Count
No_of_Cols = Cell_Add.Columns.Count
If ((No_of_Rows <> 1) Or (No_of_Cols <> 1)) Then
Alpha_Column = ""
Num_Column = Cell_Add.Column
If Num_Column < 26 Then
Alpha_Column = Chr(64 + Num_Column)
Alpha_Column = Chr(Int(Num_Column / 26) + 64) & Chr((Num_Column Mod 26) + 64)
