Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

How do you create the list of theorems? Which package do you use? Could you please show a small code example? A bit more information would make helping easier. Is this a different issue than in your other question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1852/… ? – Stefan Kottwitz Aug 16 '10 at 21:40
I don't really understand your question title. Could you change it to something more descriptive? (This will likely help get you answers, too.) – vanden Aug 17 '10 at 15:55

There's an option to do this with the ntheorem package. I can't remeber the specific code, but the documentation includes an example of doing that.

If you don't want to use ntheorem, then here's what you should do: Suppose the (latex) count associated with your theorem is theorem (if you use amsthm, I'm pretty sure this will just be the name of your theorem environment, ie the <text> in \begin{<text>}). Then after defining said theorem environment (but before \begin{document}) insert the following: \renewcommand\thetheorem{\Alph{theorem}} for capital letters or \renewcommand\thetheorem{\alph{theorem}} for lowercase.
