    I am setting up a template for ordering material. I want to set a row of cells to accept only one character per cell and have the cursor go to the next cell in the row when keying in a stock number.

    Validation works great for the cells to accept only one character per cell. Thanks for tip, and the Excel help screen.

    Now, if I could figure out to make the cursor automatically move to the next cell after a character is inserted in the previous cell.

    Hi
    Outside of an API function I do not believe you can get a change event out of a cell as you would a textbox on a userform?

    I don't believe there's any way to have any program move to the next cell until you've told the program the number you've entered is what you want - you do this by htting enter.

    If you want to be able to enter 1,2,3,4,5,6 in six horizontally adjacent cells by keying 1,enter,2,enter,3,enter....
    go to tools/options/ select 'move selection after enter' and pick a direction - in your case, 'right'

    hope this is what you're after
