Default HOW TO EDIT CELLS WITHOUT DOUBLE CLICKING THE BOX

In the older versions of excel for PC you can press F2 to edit the
text/formula's etc. Does anyone know what keyboard shortcut it is for 2008
for Mac's??

Default HOW TO EDIT CELLS WITHOUT DOUBLE CLICKING THE BOX

When XL was originally ported from Mac to DOS/Windows, MS changed the
edit cell keyboard shortcut from CTRL-u to F2. All Mac versions of XL
use the original keyboard shortcut.

You can find that information, and tons of other default keyboard
shortcuts in XL Help ("Excel Keyboard Shortcuts").

Of course, you can reassign most keyboard shortcuts in Mac versions of
XL (Tools/Customize Keyboard...), though the edit cell feature is one
that can't be assigned in XL08.
