How to click on alphabet letter to go to cell which starts with that letter in Excel?
While using an Excel worksheet with large amount of data, do you know how to navigate to or find the certain cells which contain specified content quickly? With the method in this article, you can click on an alphabet letter cell to navigate to the cell which content starts with that alphabet letter automatically.
Please do as follows to go to a cell by clicking on an alphabet cell in Excel.
1. In the worksheet, you need to go to a cell by clicking on an alphabet cell, right click on the sheet tab, and then click View Code from the right-clicking menu. See screenshot:
2. Then a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window pops up, please copy and paste below VBA code into the Code window.
VBA code: Click on alphabet letter to go to cell which starts with that letter
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim xRg As Range Dim xCell As Range Dim xRgRtn As Range On Error Resume Next Application.EnableEvents = False If Not Intersect(Target, Range("1:1")) Is Nothing Then Set xRg = ActiveSheet.UsedRange Set xRg = xRg(1).Offset(1, 0).Resize(xRg.Rows.Count, xRg.Columns.Count) For Each xCell In xRg If Left(xCell.Value, 1) = Target.Value Then If xRgRtn Is Nothing Then Set xRgRtn = xCell Else Set xRgRtn = Application.Union(xRgRtn, xCell) End If End If Next If xRgRtn.Address = Target.Address Then MsgBox "No matched cell found", , "KuTools For Excel" Else xRgRtn.Select End If End If Application.EnableEvents = True End Sub
Note: In the code, 1:1 means that the alphabet letters locate on the first row of the worksheet.
3. Press the Alt + Q keys simultaneously to close the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
From now on, when clicking on an alphabet cell, all cells which start with that letter are selected at once in the worksheet automatically.
