Hello,

I have to define the numbers to their associated letters and based on the combination of numbers the next cell should show the letters.

Example:

1 = A
2 = B
3 = C
4 = D....

If I enter number in A1 cell as 3214, in B1 cell I should get CBAD i.e. [C(3), B(2), A(1), D(4)]

Can we do this with simple formula. I am not aware of VB and Macros. Please provide your suggestions

If only upto the 9th Alphabet is needed then you can do the following:

Press Alt + F11, VB Window will appear
From the menu above Click "Insert" then "Module" then paste the below code:
---------------------------------------------------------------
Sub convertToAlphabets()

Dim rng, TargetRange As Range
Dim itemCount, cellLength As Long
Dim TempStr As String

itemCount = Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
Set rng = Range("A:A")
Set TargetRange = Range("B:B")

For j = 2 To itemCount
TempStr = ""
cellLength = Len(rng.Cells(j, 1))
For I = 1 To cellLength
Select Case Mid(rng.Cells(j, 1), i, 1)
Case 1: TempStr = TempStr + "A"
Case 2: TempStr = TempStr + "B"
Case 3: TempStr = TempStr + "C"
Case 4: TempStr = TempStr + "D"
Case 5: TempStr = TempStr + "E"
Case 6: TempStr = TempStr + "F"
Case 7: TempStr = TempStr + "G"
Case 8: TempStr = TempStr + "H"
Case 9: TempStr = TempStr + "I"
End Select
Next i
TargetRange.Cells(j, 1) = TempStr
Next j
End Sub
---------------------------------------------------------------
Then press "F5"

Note: Save your document first before running the code. It will replace all the cells in Column B and you can not undo this operation. Let me know if it worked
