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.
