Last reviewed: September 12, 1996
Article ID: Q103066

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Excel for Windows, versions 3.0, 4.0, 4.0a
  • Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh, versions 3.0, 4.0

SUMMARY

In Microsoft Excel, you can move between text boxes and other embedded graphic objects by pressing the TAB key. When you press the TAB key, graphic objects are selected according to their vertical and horizontal positions on the worksheet. The vertical position takes priority over the horizontal position.

If the objects were cells A1:C2, when you press the TAB key, you would select cell A1, then cell B1, and then then C1, then A2, B2, and C2.
