Columns and rows are labeled numerically in Excel

To change this behavior, follow these steps:

  1. Start Microsoft Excel.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. Click the Formulas tab.
  4. Under Working with formulas, click to clear the R1C1 reference style check box (upper-left corner), and then click OK.

If you select the R1C1 reference style check box, Excel changes the reference style of both row and column headings, and cell references from the A1 style to the R1C1 style.



Hope I was able to help you with this info.
