Chapter 4. Formatting Your Worksheets > Aligning and Rotating Cell Entries

Aligning and Rotating Cell Entries

By default, Excel automatically aligns data as soon as you enter it into a cell, depending on what type of data it is. Excel aligns text on the left and numbers on the right. In addition, text and numbers are initially set flush with the bottom of the cell. After you make the entries, you may need to make some adjustments to these default alignments. You can align cell entries on the left, center, or right, or you can justify cell contents to align at both the left and right sides of the cell. Excel's alignment commands also include options for wrapping text within a cell, centering entries across a selected group of cells, or rotating entries. Figure 4.9 shows a few examples of alignment options applied to a worksheet.
