Little Red Riding Hood needs to get through the woods to reach her grandmother's cottage (otherwise known as cell G6):

Excel VBA Macros exercise - Selecting cells (image 1)

We have to make these exercises interesting somehow!

Write a macro to select:

  • Little Red Riding Hood's home at cell B4 (use absolute selection for this); then
  • The start of the maze (go down 0 cells and right 2 to get there)

Now extend your macro using OFFSET commands to get to grandmother's cottage.  If it helps, you need to go:

  • right one cell
  • down one cell
  • left one cell
  • down 4 cells
  • right one cell
  • up 3 cells
  • right 2 cells

Don't forget that you can copy and paste lines of code - you don't have to type each line in afresh!

Save your file as RRH maze answer, then close it down.
