[mso] Re: Quickly select range in Excel 2000?

Hi Dian

Sorry for a slightly late response, but try:

If you need to select from a1 to z200.

Ctrl+G to get to the GO to dialog box.
Enter A1:Z200 then hit Enter.

Hope this is as helpful as the Word tip I got from you.

Regards

Johan

Subject:        [mso] Quickly select range in Excel 2000?

Hi folks...

She's at it again with Excel!<g>

There MUST be a keyboard way to more easily select a range of text,
versus
always having to use the mouse to try to scroll/drag around to select
an
area...anyone know for sure and how? I'm in Excel 2000.

What I mean is...say I open a sheet and default into A1. Can I just
hit some
keys to cause it to select all the way from A1 to X28?

I know F8 is the ExtendSelection key...to turn on "blocking"
(Selection) in
Word and I see that is the same in Excel. So in Word, I can hit say a
question mark or some other keys...and then move to that location to
select
the area in question...like the period twice to go to the second
period,
etc.

I assume there's some way to turn on EXT and hit some keys to GoTo a
specific cell and thereby select all that area so I can then just hit
Ctrl/C
to copy blah, blah, blah.

TIA...
