Algorithm

It is equivalent to a problem of converting from hexadecimal to decimal. It is not difficult, as long as the conversion is bit by bit.

Code

Java

  • 
    public class Excel_Sheet_Column_Number {
        class Solution {
            public int titleToNumber(String s) {
                int result = 0;
    
                for (int i = 0; i < s.length(); i++) {
                    result = result * 26 + (s.charAt(i) - 'A' + 1);
                }
    
                return result;
            }
