Is this code correct?

If i pass "A" = strLet

It comes back as "1" should it not be "0"



Public Function ColumnLetterToNumber(strLet As String)

Dim InputLetter As String
Dim OutputNumber As Integer
Dim Leng As Integer
Dim i As Integer

'InputLetter = InputBox("The Converting letter?")  ' Input the Column Letter

Leng = Len(strLet)
OutputNumber = 0


For i = 1 To Leng
   OutputNumber = (Asc(UCase(Mid(strLet, i, 1))) - 64) + OutputNumber * 26
Next i

'MsgBox OutputNumber   'Output the corresponding number
LtoN = OutputNumber


End Function


Freakin out on columns...
Columns start with  zero  ?

OutputNumber = Columns(strLet).Column

Open in new window


Try that instead of loop. You don't even need a function as this one liner can be used in other source procedures
