Tip of the week – Excel shortcuts

Do you find it takes you forever to move your way round a large spreadsheet?  Making use of these age old shortcuts helps you work smarter – not harder!  CTRL End will take you to the last cell with data.  CTRL Home will take you to the top of your spreadsheet.

To select just the data and not the whole spreadsheet, click inside a cell with data and press CTRL A.   This will select the current region only (to the first blank column and first blank row on either side of the data).

To quickly move from one end of a column to the other, press CTRL and the arrow on the keyboard.  This will move you in the direction of the arrow. To highlight in the direction of the arrow, press CTRL SHIFT and the arrow on the keyboard.  See graphic below
