Good Morning/Evening All...

What is the above mentioned "Box" called in a somewhat professional term?!

I need to explain this to people who can't tell the difference between Excel and a pizza and I go: Select the little box on the left hand side of the letter A column and above the figure 1 of row 1....

Naturally, nobody understands a bit...

Tell them to select Ctrl-A, control and A, together. It is much simpler.

Other than that, you call call it the intersection of the row and column headers.
