Someone already did. See Attached. Best resource ever (almost). Lists all keyboard shortcuts in excel. found on the net, so I'm not going to take credit for this.

If the attachment doesn't work, pm me.

Odd blue color because it lightly shades on a b & W printer.

The attached file misses many of the items on maxprimes list.

Hmmm... thanks. I had thought it was comprehensive. It shouldn't be too hard to add onto it.

One of the best pieces of advice I've ever found for excel shortcuts involves changing absolute references and vice versa:
  1. Select the cell that contains the formula.
  2. In the formula bar http://office.microsoft.com/global/i...ZA060515351033, select the reference you want to change.
  3. Press F4 to toggle through the combinations.
So, if you have A1, then click on the A1 part, press f4, it becomes $A$1, press f4 again, it's $A1, etc.
