In Google Spreadsheets I often use A1 notation to refer to a whole column:
For reasons I explain below, I'd like to use R1C1 format, to refer to a whole column, something like:
It's not possible to use A1:A in Excel, so as R1C1 notation originated from Excel, it seems unlikely that its possible to do this in R1C1 notation. If it is, it'd make my life easier.
Background: I have a spreadsheet visits, which pulls information from another spreadsheet data, which has a dynamically changing format.
To get around this, I use a formula to generate an address in a cell, based on the current layout of data. I can then reference this address cell in other formulae using indirect. And it's much easier to generate an address using R1C1 than A1.
