    From help file: (I think it is quite simle)

    In R1C1 reference style, Microsoft Excel indicates the location of a cell with an "R" followed by a row number and a "C" followed by a column number. For example, the absolute cell reference R1C1 is equivalent to the absolute reference $A$1 in A1 reference style. If the active cell is A1, the relative cell reference R[1]C[1] refers to the cell one row down and one column to the right, or B2.

    The following are examples of references in R1C1 style.


    R[-2]C - A relative reference to the cell two rows up and in the same column
    R[2]C[2] - A relative reference to the cell two rows down and two columns to the right
    R2C2 - An absolute reference to the cell in the second row and in the second column
    R[-1] - A relative reference to the entire row above the active cell
    R - An absolute reference to the current row
