    Question Wildcard format?

    Hi,

    If I want to use a wildcard to reference a specific cell, is this the format?

    "&*$F$8*&"

    If not, what is?

    Jeff,


    With NBVC's help,

    I have a function that is alpha-numerically counting

    C1
    C2
    ... & So on

    I needed the wildcard function or whatever the Excel formal term is to because the 'C' may change to another letter


    I'm using this to create a Rev. log of my changes. I wanted the letter designation, in this case 'C' to represent the drawing rev. change - also, in this case C.

    You just helped me complete my function & thanks to both of you, it works great.

    Thanks again....
