Jo I have a graph with various information in it. Posted this on the Ozgrid forums, but haven't gotten any help yet, so I thought I'd try here too! At the simplest I have columns in cells A1 B1 C1 the headings, Surname, Forename, Year. After clicking on a cell, if I move the mouse at all even without pressing the left button it just continues highlighting cells no matter where I move the mouse. Appreciate any help, let me know if you have any further questions. The key should no longer be blue when Scroll Lock is off. Large numbers of these indicators related to numeric formatting can slow down the responsiveness of your file, especially if the cells in question supply data to calculations in other cells. Do the file contain any formulas or links? Also how would i go about making it so that if they are trending upwards it shows an up arrow, and down arrow for downwards.
Cheers, Doug I recently moved into a new office and I am using a brand new computer on our network. The drop down list does not appear. When the arrow keys scroll through your entire spreadsheet rather than moving from cell to cell, the culprit of this behavior is the. I've made sure that screenupdating is turned back on at the end of every procedure. Click the ScrLk button at the bottom-right corner of the keyboard to turn it off. Typical preformat options include conditional rules that will change the color of calculated results, or formulas that will display running balances or ongoing financial projections.

End xlDown This does the autofill, but doesn't stop at the last cell with data in Column B. Alternately, use the On-Screen Keyboard and click the ScrLk button in the lower right. I know I can hide the headings, but then I lose sight of the first filter arrow that I use. For example, if you base a calculation in one cell on a value in a cell in another column, and the first calculation feeds another one in another cell, you can optimize your worksheet by entering these three processes in columns that range from left to right. When trying to edit an existing file, I'm not able to select a single cell and type. The cell turns blue and then wherever I move, it highlights those to.
If more than one smart tag is present, this combo switches to the next smart tag and displays its menu or message. In a worksheet that has been split, this combo moves you to the next pane. I am wondering anyone can help me to find the keyboard shortcut equivalent to that drag fill handle action. I am extremely confused, can anyone help? Here is an exercise to help you learn to move the cell cursor in a worksheet. Regards, James I have a problem sometimes. I know I can manually move the data that the line is pulling to make it stop on the last month, but I have a graph for 36 different departments and that's a pain to have to manually adjust 36 graphs each month.
Ok, I'm going to try and explain this. I have a workbook that is having an issue with drop down menu's. I can't have something that simply takes the first and last number and checks if it's higher or lower. No matter what I select, the object moves off the screen, when the user, scrolls to the right of the spreadsheet. I am also not able to click on the tool bars at all. On most keyboards, it is located in the section of the keyboard, above the arrow keys or the right of the.
I will only ever filter the data with the left-hand most column. However, all the other columns are filled each with the grey drop-down filter arrow button, and I can no longer see the headings of these columns and frankly seeing 50 little unused arrow buttons is rather ugly.

I need to actually see if they are trending upwards.

So maybe excel is doing a calculation between each cell move when in automatic mode? While in this mode you can use arrow keys or your mouse to add non-adjacent cells to your currently selected cells. Any ideas of why we are unable to make a copy of this worksheet within the same workbook or to another workbook? Is there a way to lock the position, let's say , in the upper right corner and have it stay there? I will click on a cell to add information. My thought was that even with the calculation being heavy, the cursor movement by arrow keys shouldn't be affected as badly as it is. Method 2 — Click the Start button at the bottom-left corner of the screen, click inside the search field, then type On-Screen Keyboard and press Enter on your keyboard.

Or, move the cursor to where you want to add extra code - eg, put it after the B2 and press F2 and you can the dotted box back which will allow you to for example select another cell reference, building your formula. Solution: Turn off Scroll Lock. Is there some shortcut to turn off this highlight feature other than restarting my computer. When i put it into Manual calculation mode, moving cells happens very fast. This works just like right-clicking.
I've been having a strange problem lately. I need this line to stop on the last month there is data for. Or, highlight the A2 and then press F2; you'll change the cell reference of which ever is highlighted. Maybe I'm not wording it correctly, but I'd appreciate the help. This will be a completely separate formula on the sheet. Key tips display shortcut letters on menus that you can press to navigate menus and activate commands.
