From VBA: How to select a column by column number instead of letter?

I'm in MS Access and don't know from column letters - all my constants are in
terms of column number.

I'd like to select, say, column number 7 and hide it....

Total number of items in a sale should be displayed in POS screen
Before you tender a sale it is always a good idea to compare the number of items the customer is purchasing to the number of items rung in. If your customer is buying 10 items and only 9 have been entered, you want your salespeople to know this. RMS does not display the total number of items in a sale anywhere in the POS screen so verifying that all items have been entered is difficult and therefore not done. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with the most votes.

Last Number in a column to that is not equal to zero
I have an inventory worksheet that I am having trouble with. The total daily inventory column updates daily. At the end of the column, I want a formula that gives the most recent inventory number. For instance 1 15,358 2 15,358 3 19,520 4 19,520 5 19,693 6 0 7 0 8 0 9 0 10 0 11 0 The final field in the inventory column would read 19693. There will always be a whole number for inventory, so the zeros will be replace with the number once the daily inventory is completed. one thing you can try.

easiest way to parse column and row info?

Colour Grouping of Columns
Excel 97 Is there a way to colour the columns in a chart depending on their numerical range. For example: Say we have a series of values from 0 through 100 represented in the column chart. I would like 0-25 to be one colour, 26-50 to be another, etc etc. Is this possible? Any advice gratefully appreciated.
