thanks for the help...but i do not think i articulated the question.

background....in the past i have used the "old" excel macro language. i had loops which counted the number of "passes" then let me use the "counted loops" and goto a cell that was the number of counts from the original cursor position.

example

if the original cursor position was in cell a1 and the number of "passes" were 12...then i would "move the cursor" to cell a13.

using the vba script...how can i command the macro to effectively move the cusrsor to 12 positions (up or down or left or right) based on the loop.

I don't think I'm very clear on what you want and also I do not know the old macro language. But if you want to move the selection from one cell to another cell based on the loop you can say
Code:
Select.Range("A" & i)
where i is your loop variable

let me restate an even more simple question (which will answer my question)...

if the cursor (in the spreadsheet) is in a1...and i want the cursor to move 6 cells to the right....what would be the appropriate script using vba?

Ohh..
ok. Now I understand. here you go.
This is the code you should use:
Code:
Sub movecell()
i = 10
ActiveCell.Offset(rowOffset:=0, columnOffset:="" & i).Activate
End Sub

Here are the instructions where to type the code:
1. Open the VBE with Alt-F11.
2. Open the Project Explorer with control-R (it might already be open, that's OK.)
3. Select the file you're working on in that window by clicking it.
4. Select Insert, Module from the drop down menus.
5. Open the Code window by pressing F7. This, too, might be open already.
6. Copy Paste/Write the code.
8. Run the code by pressing F5 from the VBE or from Excel under the Tools, Macro, Macros menu.

Hope this helps.
