 editing cell contents without having to double click cell

I want to edit the contents of a cell, WITHOUT HAVING TO DOUBLE CLICK
THE CELL. If I just <tab> to the cell, and start typing, the existing
contents are overwritten. I DON'T LIKE THIS behavior, I was hoping I
could just tab to the cell and USE THE ARROW KEYS TO adjust the
insertion point WITHIN THE EXISTING TEXT. But it seems Excel forces one to
always double click the cell. I want rapid entry without having to
rely on the mouse to position the insertion point.

There doesn't seem to be any Option to control this behavior.

I'm sorry but your wrong.

On a windows version of Excel You just press the [F2] key and that will
activate the cell and put the insertion point at the end of the text.

On a Mac it's [Command] + [U] (that's the Mac key and the U key).
