On the Ribbon, choose File.  Click Options, and in the options form choose Formulas.  Check the box for R1C1 reference style.

The practical benefit of changing the column letters to numbers is when you need to figure out column offsets for VLOOKUP, INDEX or OFFSET formulas or when you put a formula in cells in VBA using the FormulaR1C1 property of a range. I do it for this reason about once a week.

If instead you want to play a prank on a coworker, you might also want to try the right to left setting as well. This is found in File...Options...Advanced dialog in the Display Options section.
