Hi scarly123

If A is in A1 then in B1 type

=CODE(A1)-65

> A=0

Hi. Note that the Asc Code for the letter A is =CODE("A"), or 65.
If A1 has the letter "A", then one way...
=CODE(A1)-65
...e.tc.

All 26 letters or just some letters?

".........and on" is not too detailed.

Do you need this for a grade-point system or similar?

Perhaps you can play with this to do what you want. Enter a in A1 and it
returns 5.

=LOOKUP(A1,{"a","b","c","d","e"},{5,4,3,2,1})

Probably more robust to have:

=CODE(UPPER(A1))-65

Hope this helps.
