The ADDRESS function is one of the lookup and reference functions. It is used to return a text representation of a cell address.
The ADDRESS function syntax is:
ADDRESS(row-number, col-number[ , [ref-type] [, [A1-ref-type-flag] [, sheet name]]])
row-number is a row number to use in a cell address.
col-number is a column number to use in a cell address.
ref-type is a type of reference. It can be one of the following numeric values:
|1 or omitted
||Absolute row; relative column
||Relative row; absolute column
A1-ref-type-flag is an optional logical value: TRUE or FALSE. If it is set to TRUE or omitted, the function will analyse ref-text as an A1-style reference. If it is set to FALSE, the function will interpret ref-text as an R1C1-style reference.
sheet name is the name of the sheet to use in a cell address. It's an optional value. If it is omitted, the function will return the cell address without the sheet name indicated.
These arguments can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
To apply the ADDRESS function,
- select the cell where you wish to display the result,
- click the Insert Function icon situated at the top toolbar,
or right-click within a selected cell and select the Insert Function option from the menu,

- select the Lookup and Reference function group from the list,
- click the ADDRESS function,
- enter the required arguments separating them by comma,
- press the Enter button.
The result will be displayed in the selected cell.
