Operating fill handle and moving entire cells with keyboard

Is there any way of operating the fill handle or moving
entire cells/range of cells with the keyboard rather than
using the mouse (drag and drop).

Thanks, Tom.

Try This:

Say Cell A1 to A10 is your data which you move to corresponding Cell B
to B10. 

Select Cell A1 to A10 using keyboard itself by this==>  go to cell A
and Press ctrl+shft+down arrow . If all the cell from A1 to A10 ar
filled, then all cells shall be automatically selected. press ctrl X 
this is to cut the cells) go to cell B1  and press Ctrl+V or simpl
press <enter> key. 

Hope this works.

Cell margins ?
Our cell margins (indents) are too big, even set to 1 for a single character. Being able to reduce the left column margins a hair would let us fit more columns on a printed page without decreasing the font size. How do we get smaller margins? We have tried adding spaces to the number/text format, which helps some, but the left space does not affect wrapped lines in the cell. Ironically, Microsoft Word appears to have more flexibility in this area than Excel. In Word you have unlimited flexibility in that you can set the table cell margins (left, right, top, bottom) in fractions of a...

Moving Exchange 2003 server to another Administrative group

Creating a list in a cell
Hello. This is my first message to this group. I just want to create a cell whose content is restricted to the items or values in a list. The list would be static, and it wouldn't be a problem to fill the list by hand, as it is not expected to contain much many items. The user then could go to the cell and simply select one of the values in the list, by means of a drop down control or similar. Is there any standard option in Excel to do that? I tried something called "lists", but it doesn't work as I would like. Thank you very much in advance!! -- Vicent Hi Vincent Se...

Converting a list of email addresss that are in one cell, out horizontilly to all emails in a single column

I'd like the finished list to be all in one column, instead of all in one cell. Thank you for your time! Mike There may be an easier way, but what comes to mind is a two-step process: In Excel help, you can search for "parse", and there are instructions for distributing the contents of a cell into columns.

Moving text from row to column in Excel
Hi, I'm working with a report from a web-based application that I cannot export into Excel. I can copy and paste the text, but when I do that all the text that is listed in columns horizontally ends up being listed in the first column of my Excel file vertically. What I want to do is select, say for example, the first 8 or so items in the list vertically and have them move to the first 8 horizontal cells. Is there an easy way to do this short of copy and paste? This is something I may need to do on a regular basis and need a quick and easy way to change the way this info is coming into Ex...

"Sticky" prices for parts in Store Operations
Hi, When we go into store operations, bring up a part and check it's price, then go into another part - RMS seems to "remember" the last part's price. eg. we look at, say, a bolt - it is $3.50, we close that, open up, say, a truck (just an example) - this truck now shows a price of $3.50! In POS where we do the invoices, it has the right price for the truck... but we don't want to do an invoice when just looking up parts for a verbal query. This is a strange one, has anyone else seen this or knows where I can start looking? Thanks, Daniel This issue was fixed...
