Hello Experts,

Is there an application event I can had at workbook open that will move the cursor to the right instead of down after enter is depressed. And on Workbook close event, have it switch it back to move cursor down.

I need it for this workbook and want to make it easier than having the end-user struggle with the cursor moving in the wrong directioin or having them change the advanced settings and switch it back.

I would need this to work in 2003 and 2010 versions.

Thanks for any advice / help,

Try this as Workbook macros:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Application.MoveAfterReturnDirection = xlDown
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.MoveAfterReturnDirection = xlToRight
End Sub

Open in new window


Cheers,
Curt
