MS Excel for Mac has quite different shortcut keys than Excel for Windows. Is there any comparison table?

Rather than this

I want a table such as

Windows  Mac
F4      Ctrl+T   (Cell reference lock)
F2      Ctrl+U   (Cell edit)

// means line break. I meant to make it look like a table but it won't work. – user67275 Mar 23 '13 at 15:42
Why -1. Seems like a reasonable question. – Sherwood Botsford Mar 23 '13 at 16:23

There is a side-by-side Excel shortcut guide here:

It's not in exactly the same format as above, but it's close.

Full disclosure: this is a resource that I created.

I can only recommend to you to download the free Mac app Cheatsheet. It will show you a table with all relevant shortcut keys in any program when holding down the command key for 2 seconds.
