Just open a blank notebook. Create a text cell and put a couple of
lines at the top. Then below these lines of text, in the same text
cell, insert a 75 row by 6 column table (using the menu command
Insert, Table/Matrix, New, specify 75 rows and 6 columns (draw lines
between rows, draw lines between columns, draw frame are all selected)
and then click OK. Make sure the window is shorter than the table in
case you have a really big monitor and the window fits entirely on the
screen with the entire table visible.  Then just scroll down to the
bottom row and type in anything and the first character you type the
window automatically scrolls to the top of the cell but the input
still goes to the cell you started typing in - you just cannot see it
because it is off screen. I can post the Mathematica code, but it's so
simple to show, I don't think it's needed. This is Mathematica 6.0.1.2
on Mac OS X 10.4.11 if it matters. Thanks
