Set mc = Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1) 
MsgBox mc.Address() ' $A$1 
MsgBox mc.Address(RowAbsolute:=False) ' $A1 
MsgBox mc.Address(ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1) ' R1C1 
MsgBox mc.Address(ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1, _ 
 RowAbsolute:=False, _ 
 ColumnAbsolute:=False, _ 
 RelativeTo:=Worksheets(1).Cells(3, 3)) ' R[-2]C[-2]
