Can you help me with my Excel for Mac?
 
Hello. I have just recently started using Excel as I am taking a computer course at night school. There, we are working on Windows machines. I was taught that if I went into Tools and Options, I could change the direction the cursor moves, when I press the return button, from the cell beneath, to the cell to the right. However, when I tried to do the same thing on my MacBook at home, I don't have the Tools and Options facility. I know I could tab across, but I would much rather press the return button and it move across the page. Could anyone help me please?

From Excel Help
 
Change which cell is selected when you press RETURN
To move to a different cell when you press RETURN:
1. On the Excel menu, click Preferences, and then click Edit.
2. To move to an adjacent cell, select the Move selection after Return check box, and then select a direction in the Direction box.

Unprotecting Excel Worksheet
 
Hi, i am having trouble unprotecting a worksheet that i created. When i save the file and then try to execute i get a pop up message requesting the password. I initially password protected the worksheet while it was being created for safety reasons, however, now i need to remove it because it needs to be emailed and viewed by another party. How do i go about disabling the protection so when i email the file it can be executed and viewed without having to enter a password?

I would also like to know how to protect the cells within so when the file is viewed by a third party they are unable to revise the tables or use it for other purposes. After investing days and nights creating this worksheet i want to make it doesn't get copied or used for other purposes beyond my control.

I am using Excel 2008 version 12.2.4

Thank you

Can;t remember exactly, but I think in Preferences somewhere.

You can lock individual cells or even just the one worksheet to prevent changes. However, nothing will prevent someone from copying. Once you send it to someone you have no control over how it is used/misused. If VBA were available you could make it a little more difficult, but even then it would take rather extensive director-type programming in VBA to prevent copying.
