    Scrolling (Excel 2003)

    Hello,

    Generally, when I have an Excell document open, and I press the arrow keys, it allows me to scroll between the different cells. A black frame moves about the screen.

    However, sometimes, and lately with increasing frequency, when I press the arrow keys, it does moves the whole screen. For example, if I press the right arrow key, the whole page will shift to the left. If I had any columns all the way on the left, they will now be hidden and if I had any columns all the way on the right that were hidden, they will now be visible.

    How do I get rid of that obnoxious function and allow the arrow keys to just scroll between the cells?

    Sincerely,

    JMT

    Check "Scroll Lock" key status on keyboard; if on turn off. Key is located "northeast", next to "Print Scrn" and "Pause".

    Also ... with Scroll Lock ON, I can use Ctrl-RightArrow to scroll one screen width at a time to the Right.
    And of course, left.
    Thanks.
