Nobody claims to have been to the end of the program's spreadsheet and it has been deemed endless.

However, Hunter Hobbs, a graduate from Oklahoma University, went out to prove he could go to the last row in a challenge he called "the dumbest ever".

I read that putting the cursor in A1 and then pressing Crtl + the down arrow would take you to the last row. I don't use Excel. Can someone confirm this?

It worked for me just now under Excel 2016 Pro Plus on Win10 Pro/64-bit.

 

Dumbest challenge, or dumbest challenger who doesn't know about hot keys and KB shortcuts?

 

LOL
