Hello,
I am using Excel 2000. I am tring to move from one cell to another in Excel by using the arrow keys on my keyboard but nothing happens. I was always able to move up, down, right or left using the arrow keys but this problem just started out of the blue.

Hi DaisyE
Just check whether your SCROLL LOCK is in ON position

I have the full size flat Mac keyboard. It's the F14 key to lock/unlock the scroll.

Press your Scroll Lock key, should be near your numbers keys. It may have accidentally gotten pressed earlier and lock keys so they wouldn't scroll.

Restore an older version of the file you are working in. All should be well. Worked for me.
