Description Unknown 2001-06-27 19:38:49 UTC
Hi guys,
In a spreadsheet, when information is entered from left to right, the
autocompletion cannot be locked in by a tab.  In order to use the AutoCompletion
assistance, the user must press return.  And then to return to the desired cell,
the user must arrow over and arrow up.

I just checked M$ XP.  There, Return is used to lock in Auto Complete in a word
document.  It is also used in a spreadsheet, sending the user to the cell
below.  However, there is the additional option in XP to lock in the auto
complete and go to the cell to the right using the Tab key.

It is desirable to have both the Return and Tab keys function in this way.

Thanks for hearing me out.

To enter something into cells from left to right you could change the behaviour 
SELECTION) from down to right. But I agree that a tab should accept the 
autocompletion =>Enhancement
