How can I assign grid values to the squares of a fishnet grid?

I am working with a fishnet grid that I created but cannot figure out how to populate the attribute table of the shapefile with the corresponding grid designation. 


The details of the grid are as follows:
The X of the grid originally started with A and ended with AX. We have since had to broaden it both east and west to include YE through ZZ, then A through CT (so 146 columns in the grid). The Y of the grid is 1 through 147.  Each grid square is 5x5 meters.


There must be something I am missing in order to assign grid values to each square.  I have played around a bit with attribute assist, and editing a grid template for Make Grids and Graticules Layer (both of which are new to me).  I have also started playing around with creating rows and columns of polygons named according to the grid and named accordingly and spatially joining them with the grid squares...  I haven't quite been able to figure it out with any of these, and I figure there must be a simpler way, right?
