    There is no shortkey for that as far as I know.

    Ctrl-1 followed by A will bring up the Format, Cells, Alignment dialog. wherein you select the degree of indent you want.

    I presume you mean indent from a formatting point of view. There is no Indent function as a Function is understood in Excel.

    The function I am referring to is on the formatting toolbar. It is the button with left and right arrows showing.

    There are increase and decrease indent buttons on the formatting toolbar. If you want to use short-cut keys, you'll need to write a short sub-routine that changes the IndentLevel Property of your selection and assign your desired short-cut combination to it.

    Yes, thats what I was referring to. No shortcut keys though, unless you create a macro and assign a shortcut key to that.

    Sub InDent()
    Selection.InsertIndent 1
    End Sub

    You could assign a shortcut key to the above macro. You could also change the 1 to indent even more.

    Ctl>Alt>Tab and Ctl>Alt>Shift>Tab seem to work to increase and decrease the indent...
