What is an example of how to use ADDRESS in Excel?

In Excel, the ADDRESS function can be used to return a text string representing the address of a cell or range of cells. The function takes a number of arguments, the first of which is the address of the cell or range of cells you want to return the text string for. The second and third arguments are the row and column numbers of the first cell in the range, respectively. If you omit these arguments, Excel will use the current row and column numbers. The fourth argument is the sheet name, and the fifth argument is the workbook name. Here's an example of how to use the ADDRESS function:

In cell A1, type the following formula:

=ADDRESS(A2,1,2)

This formula will return the text string "A2" because the first cell in the range is A2.

In cell A2, type the following formula:

=ADDRESS(A1,1,2)

This formula will return the text string "A1" because the first cell in the range is A1.
