Newbie here (in a pinch I might add). My columns are now numbers, not letters, so no formulas, etc. How can I change the default back to letters (A,B, C,...)

I think this happened after I opened an Excel file from a partner in the UK who was using this style.

Thanks for the assistance.

How to calculate loan payments in Excel?
Use the PMT function: =PMT(5%/12,60,-25000) is for a $25,000 loan, 5% annual interest, 60 month loan.
Hi Rick,
Go to Tools > Options > General tab and look to see if the R1C1 Reference style is checked in the upper left of the Settings area.
Uncheck this & you should be back to normal.
