Hi,

I have a huge spreadsheet e.g. 10000 columns x 10000 rows. Most of the cells are blank. Just a few cells contain unknown values (text, numbers, signs....etc).
I just want to go to one of the non-empty cells. i have no concerns whether it's first non-empty cell or last non-empty cell.
However, i want to achieve it without using VBA.

Thx.

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).
