# 4.20 FAQ-379 How to get the column name, units, etc.?

Last Update: 2/4/2015

Use the Column Label Row Characters. For example:

// Gets and sets the long name of first column in active sheet
col(1)[L]$= ; // Gets and sets the units of first column in active sheet col(1)[U]$ = ;

// Gets and sets first Parameter row of first column in active sheet
col(1)[P1]$= ; // Gets and sets first User Defined row of first column in active sheet col(1)[D1]$ = ;
 Note: These are string properties and need to be assigned to a string variable.
