    Forcing a TAB after entry of one character (XL 2K >)

    Is there any way (via VBA) to force the cursor to automatically advance to the next cell after the User enters (in this case) one character (or space) ?

    If they also hit <enter> to "confirm" they are done, you can have the selection move any direction (see tools - options - edit (tab) - choose what you want under "move selection after enter"

    I don't think you can trigger an event after a cell entry (without the <enter>).

    A workaround would be to add textboxes over the cells of interest, since you can write code after each entry for a textbox (and just move to the next textbox), but this may be more work than you want...
