Subject: How do I use letters to represent numbers? Kinda light in details. For numbers from 0 to 25 in A1, for uppercase letters, use: CHAR(65+A1) For lowercase letters, use: CHAR(97+A1) For numbers that might be larger than 25, use base26 arithmetic. For example, numbers from 0 to 675 can be represented by the 2letter combinations formed as follows: CHAR(65+INT(A1/26))&CHAR(65+MOD(A1,26))

what i mean is that i want to input some value into a cell i.e. 6.6k which equals 6600 and in another 26mA which equals .026A for example. I then want to be able to use that in another calculation. 6.6k*26m which equals 171.6 the actual calculation does not need the k or m, but i do want to be able to just select the cell that holds the 6.6k and 26m for my calculations
