Default Automatically switch languages when moving from cell to cell

I'm putting together a template that employs both English and Japanese kanji.
Is there any already existing macro or option I can use so that the language
pack automatically switches back and forth as I tab through the cells?

If not, where should I go to learn the VB necessary to make the macro on my
own?

Thanks a lot!

Select the relevant columns and use Set Language to apply the appropriate
language formatting to the corresponding columns.

Well, that does change the way it Word handles the cell as far as proofing
and such go; but I was speaking about the keyboard being switched as well.
From English input to Japanese IME being switched to. E.G. Typing in English
*tab key* typing in Japanese characters.

Since these are separate areas of Windows, I'm not sure that it can be done.

Thank you though.

Good point; and no, it probably can't be done.
