As spreadsheets grow in size, it is sometimes necessary to go to a specific cell quickly, more quickly than the scrollbars will allow.In the example below, we will go to cell BA1551.

Using the menu system, you start by going to the menu bar and selecting:
       Edit | Go To
(as shown below)

(You can skip the menu by pressing {Ctrl G} on the keyboard.)

The Go to dialog box will appear. Type the appropriate cell reference into the Reference field. (For this example, we are using the reference BA1551.)

After typing the cell reference, click OK to go to the cell, as shown below. Note that the cell at the intersection of column BA and row 1551 is selected. (Click on the image for a higher resolution graphic.)
