Re: selecting long ranges of cells in excel


Pablo Morales
 

Mario,
Thank you so much for your answer. However I am trying to select a range
that I need to specify, no a range that excel will specify using the cells
without data. It is no what I am trying to do. About the go to dialog, there
is nothing that allow me to do what I need. Probably if I specify a range as
a data region could be. But the problem is that I will need to create data
regions before select and copy. It is a procedure that I need to do several
times, and it will make double my work.
Now, you gave me a great idea, if I add an empty row between the ranges, it
will make easier my job.
Thanks again,

the go to feature is not only used to go to a particular cell. reread my
original reply.

Ok, control + G is the keystroke to go to the cell that I want. But what is
the keystroke that I need to do to say, I want to select from this cell,
then go to the cell what ever cell, and say again, I want to stop selecting
hhere. I know how to navigate, but my problem is how to select those cells.
Just pressing the shift key is no going to work, because shift down, plus
control + g is no going to work.

if you know the top left cell and the lower right cell, you can use the go
to feature to select the range. for example, activate the go to feature,
type a1:z10 and press enter. everything from a1 to z10 will be (should be)
selected.

this also works if you should need to select more than one range. each range
is separated with a comma.

Hello all,

In excel, I am trying to select the values between two very distant cells.
How can I select two distant cells, when the distance is that long that just
holding shift and navigating through the arrow keys doesn't make sense.

Thanks for all,
