Definition of ADDRESS:

Returns a cell reference as a string.

Sample Usage





ADDRESS(row, column, [absolute_relative_mode], [use_a1_notation], [sheet])

  • row - The row number of the cell reference

  • column - The column number (not name) of the cell reference. A is column number 1.

  • absolute_relative_mode - [ OPTIONAL - 1 by default ] - An indicator of whether the reference is row/column absolute. 1 is row and column absolute (e.g. $A$1), 2 is row absolute and column relative (e.g. A$1), 3 is row relative and column absolute (e.g. $A1), and 4 is row and column relative (e.g. A1).

  • use_a1_notation - [ OPTIONAL - TRUE by default ] - A boolean indicating whether to use A1 style notation (TRUE) orR1C1 style notation (FALSE).

  • sheet - [ OPTIONAL - absent by default ] - A string indicating the name of the sheet into which the address points.


  • When using optional parameters such as sheet, ensure that commas are inserted to indicate which parameter is being set.

Step 1. To use the ADDRESS Formula, start with the Excellentable you would like to edit.

Step 2. Then type the ADDRESS formula into the cell you have chosen to display the outcome:

Step 3. Some of the arguments are optional so in this case we fill in the first 4 values.

By adding the values you would like to calculate, Excellentable generates the outcome:
