Is there a way in Excel to go to a specific row number? For example I need to find an alternate way to not have to scroll but rather can immediately go to row # 3000

There is a little box next to the formula bar in your toolbar, if you are in the first cell and row it should read A1, so to go to row 3000 type A3000 and press enter

My Microsoft (R) Excel(R) for Mac 2011 Version 14.3.2 just crashed when I used the function a few times. This was the first newly recovered feature i liked about excel in many years and its broken. Oh Microsoft though art strange ... –  Wolfgang Fahl Jan 8 at 19:56

Ctrl-G > Specific row (38:38), column (C:D), cell (eg. A1) or range (eg. range1) > Enter

Note: Ctrl-G is hotkey of Edit > Goto

Alternatively, as mentioned by muscletech, the little box next to formula bar is another option. Similarly, you can specify row, column, cell or range there.
