Navigating in Excel

Your mouse and arrow keys are the primary navigation keys used to move from cell to cell. Unlike Word, which uses a text cursor, Excel uses a cell pointer to show you the currently active cell. The active cell accepts whatever data you enter next. As you press an arrow key, Excel moves the active cell pointer in the direction of the arrow.

Table 43.1 lists the most commonly used navigational keystrokes used within a worksheet. Use your mouse to scroll with the scrollbars. To scroll long distances, press Shift while you scroll with the mouse.
