Moving from Sheet to Sheet

by Allen Wyatt

If you want to quickly move from one worksheet to another using the keyboard, you can do so by using Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown. You use Ctrl+PgUp to move toward the first worksheet in the workbook, and Ctrl+PgDown to move toward the last. When you reach the first or last worksheet, Excel does not wrap to the opposite end of the workbook if you continue to press the same shortcut key.

ExcelTips is your source for cost-effective Microsoft Excel training. This tip (2143) applies to Microsoft Excel 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. You can find a version of this tip for the ribbon interface of Excel (Excel 2007 and later) here: Moving from Sheet to Sheet.

I can cope with moving between 2 Worksheets in one Window but I am wondering how, when I have two Windows open with a different Worksheet Active in each, how can I change to the Window which has a specific Worksheet displayed.

Another way to move quickly from sheet to sheet is to right-click on the direction arrows to the left of the sheet tabs.

This displays a list of sheet names - just select the sheet you want.

Particularly useful when you have a lot of sheets.

Elizabeth: Assuming you have a transaction date column (let's say it is column C), a balance column (column D), a 30-day column (column E), and a 31-60 column (column F), you would put this in column E:

=IF((NOW()-C1) < 31, D1,0)

In column F you would put this:

=IF((NOW()-C1 > 30, D1,0)

That should do it.
