Formatting Spreadsheets

Now that you know how to take care of simple editing errors and work with blocks of cells on your worksheet, you’re ready to focus on making your worksheet look good. Adding special formats, cool fonts, attention-getting graphics, and lines and borders isn’t necessary—they are the add-ons of the visually pleasing spreadsheet. But adding these extra touches can help you make sure that people don’t go to sleep reading your numbers. And, if you use them well, the added design elements will help readers clearly understand which elements are most important in the worksheet.

Tip
