Does Excel have a formula that returns another cell's reference as text (e.g., "A1")? I need the returned value to change if I insert another row or column - for example, if I insert another row and column, the previous example would change to "B2" automatically.

Hi SWCPA,

You can use a combination of the ADDRESS(), ROW(), and COLUMN() functions:

=ADDRESS(ROW(A2),COLUMN(A2),4)

The "4" means "return the address using relative references for both row and column". Leaving it blank or entering 1 would return $A$2 instead of A2.
