    I'm trying to alphabetize my column. I'm sure it's easy but I can't seem to find it.
    Thanks

    Hi momluvs3Ido,

    Here's a function that will find the Alpha from an Integer input:

    Directions for running the routine(s) just supplied

    Copy the code to the clipboard

    Press ALT + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor.

    Select “Module” from the Insert menu

    Type "Option Explicit" then paste the code under it

    Then you can use it either in the worksheet or by code

    To use in worksheet: write =GetAlpha(A1) or whatever cell your value is in

    Or write =GetAlpha(147) to find the Alpha for column 147 etc.

    Hi,

    Or you can try typing the letter A in cell A1, and in cell B1 put formula =CHAR(CODE(A1)+1) and drag across as far as you need, should work until column Z

    Thanks.
