# What is the intersection of a column and a row in Excel?

An example is A1. This is the address of a cell in the spreadsheet. Column A and row 1, which, when clicked on, turns A1 into an active cell.

The intersection is the active cell on a spreadsheet.

In a Excel table (or spreadsheet), the intersection of a column and row is called a "cell." Where a column and row intersect you get a cell. The cell is reference by the column letter and the row number. So, for example, where column C meets row 15, is cell C15. You classify it by its column letter followed by the row number. Such as D3, B2, C5, etc.

The intersection of row and column fixes on a single cell that becomes the active cell.
