I have a shape in my workbook located above cell E10. The shape has a link to cell A43. When I press on the shape, then sure enough it takes me to A43, but that cell is now at bottom of my displayed screen with row 20 being the top row. What I would like is for row 43 to now be the first displayed row. I know I can do this with a VBA command:

Application.Goto ActiveCell, Scroll:=True

However, my client will not allow any macros in the workbook, so I am wondering if anyone can think of a way of achieving the same result without any VBA?

Thanks

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

You could choose a range like A43:A63. That would push A43 to the top. Unfortunately, the whole range is selected.

Not allowing macros is like only wanting square wheels on a car.

Ha! Thanks Jeffrey. I will go back to them and fight the case for macros!
