You need to go into options, open the transition box and un tick the "transitions navigations key" box... This same problem has been ignoring me... You can also fix the double clicking problem in here too... under "edit"

If you highlight the row that you are working in (by clicking on the row number at the left), the TAB key will move you to the next column cell each time you press it.
The intermittent problem that requires double clicking to open the cell sounds like a different issue with the computer or keys and is not an Excel problem.

How to find no. of rows and columns in Worksheet.


Hello everybody, this would be my first tip on FixYa.com. Number of people might not be aware how many rows and columns are there in Microsoft Worksheet.
This is how you can find out.
1. Select A1 cell in the worksheet
2. Now press Ctrl + down arrow from your keyboard, that will take you to the bottom of the row. You can find the number on the left side.
3. Again select A1 cell in the worksheet and press Ctrl + left arrow from your keyboard, that will take you to the last column of the worksheet. Now to number, just type "=column() " , without quotations, that will give you the number of the column.
Microsoft Worksheet columns is number from A to Z, again from AA to AZ, again from BA to BZ and so on till it reached IV in Excell 2003 and earlier version.
Microsoft Excel 2003 and old version has 16,777,216 cells per worksheet (65,536 rows * 256 columns).
Excel 2007 has 17,179,869,184 cells per worksheet (1,048,576 rows * 16,384 columns).

Cursor is stuck in the middle of the page and will not move to the left side. The back space button or the shift left button do not respond?


You've probably "frozen" your pane. "Freeze Panes" is a feature which allows you to keep one or more left-hand columns or top rows visible while you scroll through your worksheet.

You didn't say which version of Excel your're using, but in Excel 2007, you can either freeze the Row 1, Column A, or any number of rows and columns based on which cell is selected (i.e., where your cursor is) when you click on "Freeze Panes."

In Excel 2007*, the way to fix this would be to click on the "View" tab, then the "Freeze Panes" icon, which will give you several choices. Click on "Unfreeze Panes." There you go.

* The steps are similar in other versions.

Cell freeze 3 rows together at a time.


Freeze a Row in Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel 2010 can freeze, or lock, a top row as you scroll down the worksheet.
For example, you may need to keep the top row of column titles visible at all times.
The "View" tab on the command ribbon contains the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A single row or a range of rows can lock through the "Freeze Top Row" or "Freeze Panes" options.

Open the Excel worksheet.
Click the top row heading.
The row heading displays a number just left of the first column of cells. The selected row appears shaded.


Click the "View" tab on the command ribbon.
Click the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A list of options appears.

Click the "Freeze Top Row" option.
A black horizontal line appears on the worksheet.
This line indicates the locked row that stays on the screen as you scroll down the worksheet.

I can't get Microsoft Excel 2003 to delete cells


Hello,

Unless the excel spreadsheet is locked for editing then all you should have to do is Left Click on the cell you want to delete and press Backspace or the DEL key on your keyboard.

To delete multiple cells left click and hold in the middle of the first cell and drag your mouse down or across to highlight multiple cells. Then press the Backspace or DEL key on your keyboard.

Copy formulas


It should work if you just copy and paste it. Or select the range of your working area and right click in destination cell and choose paste special. When new window pop up, just choose Formula.

It should work usually, but by any chance you've encountered the problem regarding this. Just let me know...i'll try to help you...

Scroll lock in excel 2007


When SCROLL LOCK is on, "SCRL" appears on the Excel status bar. If you press the arrow keys when SCROLL LOCK is on, you scroll one row up or one row down. Or, you scroll one column to the left or one column to the right. To use the arrow keys to move between cells, you must turn SCROLL LOCK off.
