How to Navigate a Word 2007 Table
You can move from cell to cell in a Word 2007 table by using keyboard shortcuts and mouse actions, simplifying navigation with the following “leaps”:
|To Move to This Cell||Use This Keyboard Shortcut|
|Next cell in a row||Tab|
|Previous cell in a row||Shift+Tab|
|First cell in a row||Alt+Home|
|First cell in a column||Alt+Page Up|
|Last cell in a row||Alt+End|
|Last cell in a column||Alt+Page Down|

the row until the cursor changes to a right-pointing arrow, and
|An entire column||Move the cursor just above the topmost cell in the row until
the cursor changes to a down-pointing arrow, and then click.
