Getting Around the Worksheet and Data Entry
Of course you can get to your cell destination with the mouse, by simply clicking it onto
the cell to which you want to go (note that unless otherwise indicated, all mouse clicks
call upon the left button).
You can also use the Name Box to visit a cell. Just click into the box, type your cell
destination, and press Enter. Voila—you’re there.
Figure 2–1. Note the cell pointer in cell B7. Typing H1 in the Name box in pressing Enter takes you to….cell H1.
The Name Box is a cool way to travel long distances in the worksheet with precision -so
if you need to get to cell XY38451, and fast, just type it in the Name Box and press
Enter. Now want to get back where you came? Press Ctrl-Home, and you’re returned to
cell A1.
