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

Letter to Represent a Value
Try this:
1. Type a letter in cell A1 and its corresponding value in cell B1. For example, "x" in A1 and "3" in B1. 2. Repeat the process until you enter all letters and their corresponding values, with one letter and value per row. For example, A2 can take "y" and B2 can take "5." 3. Select a cell where you want to insert the value represented by the letter. 4. Type in the formula bar: =LOOKUP("letter",Af:Bl) Replace "letter" with the letter that represents the value you want to insert into the cell. Replace "Af" with the first cell that holds a letter and "Bl" with the last cell that holds a value. For example, if you defined six letters and their variables in the first six rows and wanted to insert the value of "x" in another cell, you would type "=LOOKUP("x",A1:B6)". Press "Enter" to display the formula's result. 5. Use the formula from Step 5 as an argument if you plan to use the letters as part of other functions. For instance, this function adds x and y from the examples above and displays the result, 8, in the selected cell: =SUM(LOOKUP("x",A1:B6),LOOKUP("y",A1:B6)) Hope this helps.
