My direction keys currently move the screen instead of move from one cell to another. For instance, I will have cell A1 highlighted and then press the down key. Instead of going to A2, it stays at A1 but the screen moves down one cell

Go Immediately To A Particular Cell After Inputting Data In Another Cell And Hitting Enter Options
I'm inputting data in E3 and after I hit enter I want B2 to be
selected. But only for E3 and only in one worksheet. And possibly a
further step... Sometimes the formula in B2 has picked up data from
another place depending on what value was entered in E3. If it's done
this then I won't need to go to B2, I'd want to go to A8 after E3
instead of B2.

When A Date Entered On A Specific Cell, Automatically Enter A Text In Other Cell
I have 6 Headings in excel named...

"A" in cell A1, B in B1, "C" in C1, "D" in D1, "E" in E1 and "F" in F1.

There are two projects.

Project 1 has phase A, D & F and Project 2 has phase A, B, C, D & E.

My Specification follows...

1). Take Prject 1 - Which starts from cell A2 I will keyin "A". When the phase comes to an end I will key in the end date of the phase. As soon as I key in the end date in cell A2 Letter D should automatically appear in the cell D2 and when Phase D comes to an end I will key in the end date in Cell D2 which should automatically keyin F in the cell F2. and is the same case for Project 2.

Cell Border Not Moving With Cell When Sorted
how to filter rows of data, in ascending or descending order, whilst still retaining formatting (in my case cell borders) and conditional formatting?

At present, when I filter rows in ascending / descending order, the cell formatting & conditional formatting stays in it's original position, rather than moving with the cell. I can't find a way to resolve this.

Replacing/Moving Within A Cell
XL=2003 SP3

I need to move data within a cell. Is there a formula that can accomplish this? Here is an example of what I'm trying to do..

Column A
/ TN14YP244f
/ TN15YP245j
/ TN16YP246h

What it would need to do is take the last character in each cell and move it to replace the P in that cell. It should also capitalize the letter. ie: / TN14YP244f would become / TN14YF244

The letters at the end of the cell are always different, however the letter they replace is always the same (P).

Moving Data To A New Cell.
I have cut and pasted a large amount of data onto a spreadsheet. The problem is that I have two rows of data that is associated with one another, so lets say A1 has a name and A2 contains that person's age. This process repeats in the same way in A3 and A4 and so on.

I need to move the data from A2 to B1 without using a simple function like =A2 in B1. The reason is that I will need to sort just the Names in column A once I get the the data moved. I am not sure how to do this.

Moving Data To Another Cell
I have 3 columns Z, AA, AB. The heading for Z1 is A, AA1 is B and AB1 is C
In column Z2:Z2000, there is a mix of A, Bs and Cs. I want A to stay in Z1 column, Bs to goto AA1 and Cs to goto AB1, also I want this added to a macro that I previously created, so everything happens with one push of a button

Now for save, not sure if this is possible or not, if I can have this added to the macro as well that would be great. When I push my macro button, the file saves to Dec (todays date) DB (81).xls The number 81 is the total count of A, Bs Cs, this # will change depending on how may A, Bs and Cs there are. I really hope there is a way of doing all this

Moving Down A Cell Within A Macro
What I need to do is have the macro move down a cell each time the data is pasted -

Sub saleschartnew()
ActiveWindow.ScrollRow = 3
ActiveWindow.ScrollRow = 2
ActiveWindow.ScrollRow = 1
Sheets("Monthly Sales Chart").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Sheets("Entry form").Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False...............

I did search and found this: activesheet.cells(row,Col).offset(0,1).value = " Properties"

However, my knowledge of VBA is basically zero so I am not sure how this would be implemented into the macro.

Restricting Moving Onto Another Cell Until One Is Filled In
I'm an intermediate Excel user that can navigate around pretty well, but now my boss wants me manipulate Excel in such a way that I cannot figure out how to do.

He wants the worksheet to be "locked" so that I cannot select another or "the next" cell unless the active cell I'm in has something entered into it. The purpose of this is so that when a manager is buying off (proofing and approving) my work, he can't put his initials in a cell next to the purchased item unless the cell that decribes the purchaed item is filled in. I'm not exactly sure what terminology to use when describing this, so forgive me if I'm being vague.

Can I restrict a user from "moving on" to another cell unless the active cell is filled in? And if so, how do I do this?

Moving Defined Cell Data Down One Row
This is the last task in a project I inherited. I have included a sample sheet with 50 rows of data which represents a real sheet with 185,000 rows. This sheet has seven columns, but only two of which apply to this task, columns A and B. Column A is a list of parcel numbers which can, and in many times does, repeat multiple times. Column B is a list of the 'sellers' name for the respective parcel number. This sheet has been sorted by parcel number, then date.

As the current 'seller' was the previous 'buyer', I need to move the 'sellers' name down one row, if the parcel number (Column A) is repeated. If the parcel number is not repeated, the name (Column B) will need to be deleted. This will leave the 'top' line for each unique parcel number blank, which I can work with. As far as the bottom name for each unique parcel number, it will need to also be deleted as there is no where for it to be transferred to. Only the name will be deleted from the 'bottom' row, not the rest of the data. The end result should not change the amount of rows of data.

Return Address Of Moving Cell
I want to be able to display the location of a specific cell no matter if I move it around by inserting cells above it. I've used =ADDRESS(41,2,1,TRUE,B41). Cell B41 contains the word "Tommy". So the result of this formula returns this: Tommy!$B$41. But now if I insert a row above cell B41, "Tommy" moves to cell B42 but the formula still returns: Tommy!$B$41. How can I get the formula to display the new cell address of "Tommy"?

Hitting Enter In An Unlocked Cell Without It Advancing To The Next Unlocked Cell
I have a locked spreadsheet with unlocked cells and checkboxes. The unlocked cells is for the user to enter text. The user navigation is top to botton in column a in sequential order by row.

For example: I have an unlocked cell in A1, then 20 checkboxes from A2:A21 and then another unlocked cell in A22. My problem is that when the user types text in A1 and hits ENTER - the cursor jumps to A22 (the next unlocked cell and scrolls the screen down accordingly. The user then has to scroll back up to select the checkbox in A2 and so on down to A22 before typing in A22.

I have created a command button that floats...that ultimately I would like the user to be able to select after typing in an unlocked cell(instead of hitting ENTER) and it removes the cursor from the unlocked cell - leaving the text entered - freeing the user to select checkboxes because excel didn't advance to the next unlocked cell.

Is there a way to add data into a cell that already had a formula? Lets say in cell A1 we have a formula like "=A1*A2". Would I be able to some how enter a value into cell A1 without changing the formula?

Example: enter value "5" into A2 and value "10" into A1 which would result in A1 value being "50" after value is entered.

I know that this creates a circular error but is there any other way to accomplish this?
