An Excel worksheet can span 16,384 columns and 1,048,576 rows; fortunately, very few worksheets get this big, but knowing how to navigate through a worksheet is another critical Excel topic you’ll need to know before you can master Excel. This lesson explains the most common ways to navigate an Excel worksheet.
The Keyboard: Move the cell pointer using your keyboard’s arrow keys.
To help you know where you are in a worksheet, Excel displays row headings, identified by numbers, on the left side of the worksheet, and column headings, identified by letters, at the top of the worksheet. Each cell in a worksheet has its own cell address made from its column letter and row number—such as cell A1, A2, B1, B2, etc. You can immediately find the address of a cell by looking at the Name Box, which shows the current cell address.
