    What are the rules that apply to using the autofill of double clicking the handle of an active cell indicator's once the pointer has turned to cross hairs?

    The autofill when double clicked will only go as far down the page as the column next to it has. If there is nothing in the column next to it, then it will not move.

    Yeah try this. Right click the cell and select Copy, then hold shift and double click the top of the cell. This takes you right to the top, then just paste. Works for left too

    But through it all when there was doubt, I ate it up and spit it out

    yeah, I usually navigate that way a lot..... it's fab

    I was hoping for a "mouse only" thing though like the double click downfill

    (it irritates me when I have to go : mouse / keyboard / mouse / keyboard, ya know ?)

    In hope,
    Chris

    Surely guys

    The autofilter function can be used for numerous call-ups.Instead of looking upwards or using ctrl-g
    Why not just do a custom search on the subject.
