expression A variable that represents a Range object.


If the object is a range, this property emulates pressing Shift+Tab; unlike the key combination, however, the property returns the previous cell without selecting it.

This example selects the previous unlocked cell on Sheet1. If Sheet1 is unprotected, this is the cell immediately to the left of the active cell.
