EXCEL DATA

I have a column in a worksheet that contains different Counties. I want to assign each County a different letter eg A, B, C, D - Some Counties will have the same letter assigned eg Lake = A and Geauga = A. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

Re: EXCEL DATA

For example - column K1:K4555 will have counties listed in them such as Stark, Washington, Ashtabula, Geauga. I need to set these up to match a letter eg. Stark would be an A, Washington would be a C and Geauga may be an A. I hope you understand I need to break down the counties in areas and the area name will be A, B, C etc.

What is your criteria for assigning the letter to the county? Would a VLOOKUP do it?
