    Very Basic Excel question..

    I hardly ever use Excel and I'm kind of muddling along but one things getting the better of me and I know its got to be stupidly simple

    When I've filled in a cell and moved on to the next one.. How can I go back and edit a previous cell, without having to start the cell from scratch?

    I only want to change 1 letter

    Can anyone give me a 'SIMPLE' answer

    Double click on the cell and then just click on the part you need to amend then click out when you have finished

    Shift tab to go back to the previous cell. F2 to edit it.

    Or, another way of editing it is to mouse-click in the long window just above the column letters.

    Does that help?
