When in a spreadsheet, the arrow keys do not move cursor

I have been using this spreadsheet for years. Normally, I can move from cell to cell by using the arrow keys. But today, using the arrow keys keeps the cursor in the same cell, but the entire spreadsheet moves! Anyone have any idea what I can do to resolve this?

Thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I just discovered what it was! Someone cleaned the keyboard yesterday, and apparently pressed the scroll lock key! I have never used that key before---but once I pressed it, the problem disappeared. Thanks anyway!!

First try to see the cursor is not within the cell blinking cause sometimes when the cursor is within the cell it traps the controls and will not able to function on your desire output. so try to observed it again.

Sometimes when I am on my laptop the arrow for my cursor disappears and I can not do anything unless I can get the arrow keys to take me to something.


Go to the Control Panel, using the menu (keys control+ESC).

Using the arrow keys.

Using the tab keys go to mouse icon and then pointers and make the changes to reveal the cursors.

How do i perform linear regressions on TI-Nspire Individual Handheld


Start by creating the data lists.

CREATE THE X-LIST
  1. Press Home.
  2. Use navigation pad to Highlight [3: Lists and Spreadsheets]
  3. Press Enter
  4. A list opens with cursor in Cell A1.
  5. Use UpArrow to move the cursor to the header of the list and give it a name, say X.
  6. Press Enter. Cursor moves to Cell A1
  7. Enter an X-value in each cell and press ENTER to move to next cell:
  8. Type 1, and press ENTER. Say Yes to overwrite message by pressing OK.
  9. Enter 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 (just a bogus sample).
CREATE THE Y-LIST
  1. After typing 10 in cell A10, press ENTER to validate.
  2. Use the Navigation pad to move cursor to the head of the B column.
  3. Give it a name , say Y.
  4. Press ENTER, Cursor moves to cell B1.
  5. As for X-list, enter the Y values. Here is a sample (-2, -1, 0, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7). After you type value in B1, accept the overwrite message by pressing OK. Type the other values.
  6. Make sure that the X-List and Y-List have the same number of elements, otherwise you will have a dimension mismatch error.
DOING A REGRESSION
  1. While the lidt is still displyed, prress the Menu key
  2. Highlight [4:Statistics]
  3. Use Right Arrow to unfold submenu list and select [1:Stat Calculations]

Using Tab to move from one line to the next, configure the calculator as seen on the next screen.

The statistical results will hence be displayed in the C[] column.
Use TAb to move focus to OK, and press ENTER.
Here they are.

You can recognize each statistical results, RegEq is y=mx+b. You also have m, b, r^2, and r. The residuals appear on the next row. By highlighting the cell with the {0.,0...0} you can display the hidden values

Here you have all you asked for. But you can go further by drawing the curve.

The regression equation is stored in function f1, so you have to draw the f1 function. .

DRAWING THE REGRESSION CURVE

Press the HOME button
Highlight and select [2:Graphs and Geometry]
At the bottom of the screen there is a command line with f2(x)=
Use the UpArrow to display the f1(x)= equation

Press ENTER to draw the function f1

I think I have to stop here. There is enough material to get you started.
I left for you the part where you draw the data points. read the user manual.

Need the ability to "tab" from field to field on right of kybd


When you press ENTER to finish working in a cell, Microsoft Excel moves the cursor one cell down by default. However, you can select the direction in which you want the cursor to move.
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Edit tab, do one of the following:
    • To change the direction in which the cursor moves, select the Move selection after Enter check box, and then select a direction in the Direction box.
    • To keep the cursor in the current cell, clear the Move selection after Enter check box.
Note When a range or set of ranges is selected, pressing ENTER moves the cursor within the range or set or ranges only.

Sounds like Scroll Lock is on. Shift-F14 should disable it, unless the default shortcut keys have been changed.
