How do I get column letter with API?

How do I get column letter with API?

This is probably an easy one, but I've banged my head over it for a couple hours on at least a couple different days...How do I get column letter of the selected cell with API?  I can get a number for the column (with cells), or the complete cell address (column letter and row number as one string).  But how do I just get the column letter?


RE: How do I get column letter with API?

A bit hacky I'm afraid, but it works:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
strfirst = IIf(Chr$(64 + ActiveCell.Column \ 26) = "@", "", Chr(64 + ActiveCell.Column \ 26))
strletter = strfirst & Chr$(64 + ActiveCell.Column Mod 26)
MsgBox strletter
End Sub

Get the column number, use Mod and Div to get the 2 parts, test for blank first letter and then concatenate.

Good Luck
