Getting column index from Excel

Hey guys! Me again :sob:

I want to get the column index/letter for column named “Group” from an excel file.

The column can move a lot, but all I want is the column index/letter (e.g. A, J AB, C, D) that corresponds to it

Can anyone help?

How did I then convert this to letter (to match column letter in excel)?
