Help, My Columns Now Have Numbers Instead Of Letters. - Excel
A coworker asked me to help him with his excel file. He opened a file that had numbers instead of letters in the column labels, now he is seeing it in other files he linked that file to. How do you change it back? The name box even says R34C7 or R23C90 for Row and Column.

I'm using Office 2003. Excel column labels used to be letters A-B-C etc, but
somehow got changed so both rows & columns have number labels. I would like
to go back to letters for column names, but haven't been able to find out how
to make the switch.
I've opened a worksheet my college has been using and the letters usually found at the top of each column is now a number.
How can i change this back?
Thanks for your help
My excel columns somehow reverted to numbers instead of letters. How can I
change the format back to letters?
I am using Excel 2007. Today when I opened up Excel, I noticed the formulas being automatically created from my actions were a little strange. Then I noticed the columns weren't labeled with letters instead each column was labeled with a number. So cell A1 is now R1C1.
Not sure how this change happened. How do I change back to the number letter format?
when i opened excel this evening, i found that columns and rows are both
labeled with numbers. How do I relabel the columns alphabetically so that I
can use formulas? thanks
I inherited a work spreadsheet that has the columns shown as numbers instead of letters. How do I change it back? Can I change it back for one of the worksheets or will it change it for all the sheets in the file?
Both the Row and Column headers are numbers, instead of the default letters
for columns and numbers for rows. So instead of having Cell 'A1' for
instance i have Cell 'R1C1'. It makes it confusing when trying to check
correct cells are used in formulas etc. How can i return the column headings
This is my first post. I tried to look around for a solution to this, but I'm not even sure what to search for because it is difficult to describe. The best I can do is give you an example.
-Let's say I have the alphabet in column A.
-A1 is a header that reads "ALPHABET"
-A2-A27 are the letters of the alphabet. "A,B,C,D, etc...."
-B1 is a header that reads "WHATEVER"
-Here is the tricky part to describe. In the B column, I have a subset of the A column. In other words, I have some of the letters of the alphabet, but not all of the letters of the alphabet. Also, I don't have any letters twice. Column B might have "D,N,Z,H,Y" but it won't have anything like "B,G,B,M,N,G" where letters are repeated.
- I want to sort the B column so that the letters of the alphabet I have will be on the same row as the letters in the A column. So, I in the B column I have "C,B,E" in "B2,B3,B4" respectively, after sorting column B, the letters will be on the same row as the matching letter in the A column. The C would be moved from B2 to B4 (not B3 because of the header).
Wow, does that make sense? In real life, I will be dumping file names into excel columns and doing this. I can't go into specifics, but I will get a list of files to download (with a script). There are always errors and problems with a few files, though. Once I am done, I dump a directory of the files I could download into a text file and move it to an excel column. The idea is to sort the files I could download against the original list and find out what Im missing. Again, hope this makes sense, but if my real world description doesn't then just stick to the alphabet example, lol.
Thanks a million!

I export this information from my POS software. It is inventory information. I export it to a .csv file, then by saving it as a .xls file I can use the info to print my barcode labels.
For some reason one field (supplier part number) comes in like this:
Column is formatted General,
numbers will go to the right, and the numbers that have letters in them will go to the left of the column. I can align them all to one side, but that doesn't help my problem.
This .xls file is used by my Tagfast label program as an ole, and when the info comes into my Tagfast database the (supplier part number) that has letters in it do not show up, only the numbers show.
I guess my question is why are these entrys coming into the database on both sides of the column?
While merging data from different worksheets and formatting cells, I suddenly
noticed the column identifiers at the top of my worksheet changed to numbers
instead of letters. Any good ideas on how I should change them back to
letters? I searched Help Online and came up empty thus far. Thanks!
When I opened my Excel today I had numbers in the column headings instead of letters, so the cell in the first row first column had a location of R1C1, which I am assuming means; row 1 column 1. I have never seen this before and have no idea how to get it back to letters for the columns. I am hesitant to open any worksheets until this is figured out.
Please any/all help is greatly appreciated!!
Take care, Rick.
I am working with excell 2002 and a spreadsheet that someone gave me has numbers showing up across the columns instead of letters the rows are still numbered. I have never seen this before can any one tell me what is going on and how to get the letters back.
I feel really dumb but I have tried searching the web and the site for an answer. I have let it go for a while but now I need to change the code on my worksheet and I want to change the way the columns are titled.
For some reason, instead of the columns being labeled by letters, they are labeled as numbers as are the rows. How do I get it back to letters?
Thanks for all of your help!
Hi. I'm a new member here, so if this is a redundant question, I apologize.
I am using Excel 2003. Up until last year sometime, the headers were labelled with letters (A,B,C,etc). I'm not sure when or how, but they are now labelled with numbers like the rows. I find this much more difficult to use, especially since the formulas in the spreadsheets I developed all use the lettered columns, but they now are listed by number. How did the labels change, and is there a way I can change the columns back to letters? Or was this changed by Microsoft with an update?
Thanks in advance for the help.
Hi there, does anyone know if there is a method to filter by characters/letters (or it would suffice to filter only by numbers).
To explain the situation I have a sheet that is created via a macro from a text file but before I add a formula to the sheet (involving a lastrow code) I need to take out quite few rows of needless text i.e. headers, page numbers, file details, dotted lines from where the page breaks were on the text file etc. to cut down the rows of calculation. Obviously the number of rows varies with each load of a new text file.
Now what I do have is a column (C) where all the rows I need to keep are a numeric value and all the lines I need to lose are either characters or letters.
I can apply an autofilter for each different character/word/partial word but there are a fair few I would need to put in so I was wondering if there is already a method in excel for selecting letters/characters/numbers separately to use with a filter.
Please note that it needs to be added to a macro and needs to work in Excel 2003.
Hi, Im not really sure of the formula I need so I havent suggested. I have tried len, Istext etc but got stuck.
I have a combination of letters and numbers in a column. For example.
I need a formula to tell whether they begin with two letters and have a certain number of numbers then end in letters. Or have letters in the middle. Sorry Im so vague, I just need a start in the right direction. Ideally combined with an IF statement.
In english (If two letters afetr nine numbers then yes)
I have an excel file that contains 12 sheets (Jan-Dec). I selected all sheets and clicked on track changes, saved and closed. I opened the file back up and "unchecked" the previous selections I make to track changes, saved and closed. I opened the file again and it appears there is a something over (black background) all of the worksheets except Dec. You can see the row numbers but cannot see the column letters. You cannot click on anywhere except the row #'s. Any ideas on how what happened and how to restore the information?
