Even the little one-boxer that does the   work in my example probably should be put into a UF so it can be called from   multiple places but maintained only in one place.</FONT></P>  <P><FONT size=2>For example, this code will fail if the input number >=   256*26. To fix that you might want to add a third digit & character TD   & TC so you can generate AAA, AAB, etc, or maybe fire an error pin. You   might even rewrite completely to generalize the number of characters it can   handle. If it's in a UF, it becomes relatively easy to change and maintain. If   it were scattered through your application as formulas or UOs, these changes   would be harder to locate and coordinate without error.</FONT></P>  <P><FONT size=2>End of sermon.</FONT> </P><BR>  <P><FONT size=2>> -----Original Message-----</FONT> <BR><FONT size=2>>   From: Baranski, Detlef [<A   href=""></A>]</FONT>   <BR><FONT size=2>> Sent: Thursday, April 08, 2004 8:34 AM</FONT> <BR><FONT   size=2>> </FONT><BR><FONT size=2>> Does someone has a nice functions in   Vee availble to </FONT><BR><FONT size=2>> transform the numbers</FONT>   <BR><FONT size=2>> 1-256 into Excel - Cell formats A,B,C ...AA,AB, AC   etc.  ? </FONT><BR><FONT size=2>> And maybe vice</FONT> <BR><FONT   size=2>> versa ?</FONT> <BR><FONT size=2>> </FONT><BR><FONT size=2>>   Or is there an excel function to do so ?</FONT> <BR><FONT size=2>>   </FONT><BR><FONT size=2>> Thanks for any help,</FONT> <BR><FONT size=2>>   detlef</FONT> </P>  <P><FONT face=Arial color=#000000 size=2></FONT> </P></BLOCKQUOTE>---<BR>You are currently subscribed to vrf as:<BR>To subscribe send a blank email to "".<BR>To unsubscribe send a blank email to "".<BR>To send messages to this mailing list,  email "".  <BR>If you need help with the mailing list send a message to "".</BODY></HTML>
