Column Labels are Numbers Not Letters...

I am using Excel 2007. Today when I opened up Excel, I noticed the formulas being automatically created from my actions were a little strange. Then I noticed the columns weren't labeled with letters instead each column was labeled with a number. So cell A1 is now R1C1.

Not sure how this change happened. How do I change back to the number letter format? :confused:

Thanks,
Jean

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

You have just somehow changed the notation, which is no big deal. Not sure where it's at in 2007, but under options someplace, there's probably a checkbox to un-tick.
