Moving Through Your Spreadsheet

There are several ways to move through your spreadsheet.  You can use the scrollbar and your mouse to scroll your spreadhseet like you do other documents and web pages.  Simply click on the the cell (box) you wish to edit.  Or, you can use the arrow keys.  Click a cell in your spreadsheet and navigate through the spreadsheet with the arrow keys.

You can also type in the cell number and letter in the Name Box.  The Name Box is the box in the left corner above the spreadsheet.  The number and letter in that box let you know what cell you are in.  Highlight the current number and letter in the Name Box, type in the number and letter of the cell you wish to get to, and hit return.  You will be brought directly to that cell.
