Resolved Question:

Just need a short response to the following:

We looked at how the Word 2010 table feature was similar to and different from an Excel worksheet. Now that we know what cell reference means, is there any other way we can refer to cells? Or is column/row the only way?

In Excel, column/row is how you reference a cell. That's the only way...

Hi,

 

You can also use "named ranges" or "structured references in tables" to refer to cells.

 

Hope this helps

So is column/row the only way or not?
Expert:  John D replied 5 years ago.

No it isn't. You can refer to cells using column/row OR named ranges OR structured reference if the cells are in a table

 

Hope this helps

Named ranges are still column-row pairs put together...

Structured references can only be used in a table.

Since the question was about cells, that's what I went with.
