When your worksheets get quite large, you may want to jump right to a specific cell or named range, without the need to search for the range. Excel allows you to do this very quickly. If you want to select a named range, simply use the Name Box pull-down list (just above Column A) to choose the named range you want selected.
You can also use the Go To dialog box. Press F5 (or Ctrl+G) and the Go To dialog box appears. Select a range in the list displayed, or enter a specific cell reference (or range reference) to which you want to jump. When you click on OK, the specified region is selected.
