Range.Previous Property 

Returns a Range object that represents the previous cell.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel (in microsoft.office.interop.excel.dll)

'Usage
Dim range1 As Range

Dim returnValue As Range
returnValue = range1.Previous

Range Previous {get;}
public Range get_Previous();
function get Previous() : Range;

If the object is a range, this property emulates pressing SHIFT+TAB; unlike the key combination, however, the property returns the previous cell without selecting it.

On a protected sheet, this property returns the previous unlocked cell. On an unprotected sheet, this property always returns the cell immediately to the left of the specified cell.
