In 2003 and prior: Tools-Options-Edit tab.
In 2007: Office button-Excel options-Advanced section, first option.

I don't which Office version you are using, but I'm going to answer for Excel 2007.

Go to 'Office button' and click 'Excel options' button (right bottom corner). A new window will be opened.
Click on 'Advanced' and you will see a list of checkboxs, and the first one says 'After pushing Enter, move selection'. The you can choose the direction.

Excuse me if the messages aren't exactly real, but I have Spanish version.

Rorya and siys23,
I only want the cursor to move down in one section of the sheet while keeping the cursor "standard" in the rest of the sheet.  Can I control the cursor at the cell level?
Thanks,
B.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Only with code, if that's an option. (we'd need to know which ranges)

Is it simple (a few lines) or a major undertaking?  I can plug in the range and then replicate as necessary thoughout the sheet.
If difficult, I'll close out the question with the answers I have.

Not complicated really - you'd need a worksheet activate event and a selection change one - something like the code below.
FYI, down IS the standard.



Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Not Intersect(Target, rnage("A:A")) Is Nothing Then
        Application.MoveAfterReturnDirection = xlDown
    Else
        Application.MoveAfterReturnDirection = xlRight
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window
