EXCEL 97 SHORTCUT KEYS

 

Using Microsoft Excel 97.0 with Shortcut Keys

3 ways to access Excel 97 commands:

Menu bar
Toolbar
Summary of Excel 97 Shortcut Keys

Menu bar

You can select any menu command on the menu bar; or on the toolbar with keyboard shortcuts. Press ALT to activate the menu bar. Once the menu bar has been activated press any underlined pull down file menu letter, your selection will then become highlighted by a 3-D contrasting focus. Now press the letter that is underlined within the pull down menu containing the command you want.

Toolbar

If you want to use the toolbar, press F10+CONTROL plus TAB to go to the top row of the toolbar; repeat the CONTROL plus TAB command to go to the bottom row of the toolbar. The right and left arrow keys move the 3-D contrasting focus in both toolbar levels.

Summary of Excel 97 Shortcut Keys:

Shortcut Keys provide anyone with the ability to edit and or create a Excel document without depending upon a mouse pointer. Click on any of the following 13 hot links to learn how to use Shortcut Keys to access the commands within Microsoft's Excel 97.

If you are unable to use the mouse pointer to go to any of the 13 "hot links": press the TAB key until the link you want is highlighted by dots then press Enter. Accessing hot links with the TAB key will not work with Internet browsers earlier then Netscape Navigator 4.0.

Enter data by using shortcut keys:

All of the commands presented in the Entering Data Table consist of two units per command. Each command occupies a complete line of text. In the first command, for example, the first unit "Complete a cell entry" describes the result of  pressing the ENTER key. It is this second unit that puts into action the first unit. The  same reasoning applies to the command: "Start a new line in the same cell" with the combined pressing of the ALT+ENTER keys, etc.
