Default Why have my Excel columns become numbers not letters?

I noticed this before when using Lotus notes but it's now happening in
Windows too. Any ideas? Thanks

Click TOOL in the menu & select OPTIONS. In the dialog box click the GENERAL
tab and remove the check from the R1C1 REFERENCE STYLE check box.

Click OK to exit
