Column Number to Alphabetical reference

The below function can be used to convert any Column Number into Alphabets. example :- If you pass 1 to the function, it will Return A. If you pass 26, It will return Z. If you pass 27 It will return AA....and so on.

Public Function GetColumn(Pr)
    Dim Rn As Range
    Set Rn = ActiveSheet.Cells(1, Pr)
    GetColumn = Mid(Rn.Address, 2, InStr(2, Rn.Address, "$") - 2)
End Function

Let me know if you have better solution.

=SUBSTITUTE(ADDRESS(1,16384,4),1,"") will return XFD
