Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Welcome,

Firstly turn off CAPS LOCK, it appears you're shouting at everyone.

Secondly, look at the VLookup function, there is a lot of information in the Help File as well as searching via Google. You can create a reference table with letters and corresponding numbers

Good luck
