Hi,

Currently my Excel 2000 worksheets have numbers rather than letters as the column headers. How do I change this to letters?

eg instead of cell A1 it is cell 11
 

Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.
