... you can force Excel to use numbers for both row and column rather than column letter
and row number

BTW the $ indicates the cell reference is fixed and will not be changed of the formula is copied or moved.

Couldn’t get that? It is referring to 1048576 columns across starting from column A? or what it is the row starting from row 1 all the way to 1048576th row? Across or down….please explain

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sheet1!$1:$1048576 refers to every row in Sheet1.  Excel uses letters to define the columns and numbers to define the rows.

For example A1 is top left most cell in a sheet and XFD1048576 is bottom right most cell.

Referencing Sheet1!$1:$1048576 in effect references the whole sheet.  You could have used Sheet1!A:XFD also to reference the whole sheet.

No points, please :)

>>Sheet1!$1:$1048576 refers to every row in Sheet1.

This is correct.

>>Excel uses letters to define the columns and numbers to define the rows.

This is correct if the default A1 notation style is in use.  There is however an alternative R1C1 style.
