Excel Column Letter To

4/8/2016 3:06:00 PM -- Ted Krapf

Have you ever been working with a large Excel or other spreadsheet document and think, "man, I wish I could look up what the number equivalent of column BD is!"?  Me too!

So I built a crazy simple web app that converts an Excel column letter (or letters) to its numerical value.  For example, BD = column #56.  I frequently use this for figuring out the column number when doing a VLOOKUP.  Or when I'm working on very wide spreadsheets.

You can find the free Excel Column Letter To Number tool at:

Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Happy Coding!
