How to organize Excel Columns in an intuitive format

timer Asked: Feb 6th, 2014

Question description

Hi, I have a large excel file where all the columns are predetermined

For example, column A is always name, column B is always item type, column C is always quantity, and so on - 108 columns in total.
Sometimes I need to programmatically replace the name, or the type or the quantity, but I don't want to constantly refer to the enumerator of the column (e.g. 1 for A, 2 for B, 3 for C). What's the best way to store the enumeration in intuitive format,  e.g.   item.title_address is always 1, item.type_address is always 2, item.qty_address is always 3     One way is to do an #DEFINE for 108 items, but not sure I want to do that.
