Can you set focus to a specific RowHeader cell or make a specific RowHeader cell the active cell

    Hello all,

    In certain situations, if a user tries to autosort a column, I want to cancel it and return them to the cell they were in before clicking the autosort icon. I am keeping track of the last row and column and also the last header row and column. I know that I can set the active cell in the data area, but how do I do that in the RowHeader? Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or suggestions!

    You can not set focus to a header cell.  The header cells are simply labels.  The active cell is always a data cell.  When you click on a row/column header cell (e.g. to select a row/column), the first data cell in the row/column becomes the active cell.

    Thanks BobbyO, that's what I thought I remembered. The additional explanation was helpful.
